CurrencyRhydin Hegemony Dollar

The Hegemony of The City State Rhydin is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Tsari'Atra Ri'Zun with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 25.576 billion Rhydinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhydin. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient City State Rhydinian economy, worth a remarkable 5,292 trillion Rhydin Hegemony Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 206,950 Rhydin Hegemony Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Tourism facilities are being turned into tbe habitats, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, and sweet-toothed Rhydinians have been left penniless by the VAT on candy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The City State Rhydin's national animal is the tbe, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The City State Rhydin is ranked 74,961st in the world and 9th in The Forgotten Lands for Most Politically Free, scoring 59.81 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
