The E-Democracy of The Rhein States is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18.825 billion Rhein Statesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heidelberg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rhein Statesian economy, worth an astonishing 10,145 trillion Rheiner Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is a breathtaking 538,918 Rheiner Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and the big red machine has ground to a halt. Crime is totally unknown. The Rhein States's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Absurdism.

The Rhein States is ranked 75th in the world and 13th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 15,279.7 Bank.
