The E-Democracy of The Rhein States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.472 billion Rhein Statesians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken 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 a remarkable 3,626 trillion Gold Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 316,143 Gold Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Heidelberg to enjoy their national art, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, and the government funds large training centres to turn Peregrine Falcons into functioning members of society. 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 Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Absurdism.

The Rhein States is ranked 716th in the world and 40th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 98.48 on the Human Development Index.
