The E-Democracy of The Rhein States is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.783 billion Rhein Statesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heidelberg. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Rhein Statesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,402 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 245,562 Rheiner Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A government program is underway to revitalize The Rhein States's beaches, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and everybody's got wood thanks to Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Rhein States's national animal is the Adelaar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Existentialism.

The Rhein States is ranked 149,695th in the world and 8,076th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -71.33 on the Rand Index.
