The E-Democracy of The Rhein States is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.31 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, 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 5,156 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 an amazing 387,413 Rheiner Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Torture is illegal, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. 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 19,031st in the world and 720th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 14,215.13 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
