The Empire of Grand Rheinland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Ridward with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.29 billion Rheinlandians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Grand Rheinlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,209 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 165,942 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, school football matches are usually five-a-side, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and the latest superhero movie features a caped Grand Bird with adamantium claws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grand Rheinland's national animal is the Grand Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Colonial Religion.

Grand Rheinland is ranked 6,923rd in the world and 202nd in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.84 Years.
