Great Rhineland

The Holy Empire of Great Rhineland is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service and restrictive gun laws. The cynical, devout population of 185 million Great Rhinelandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic government prioritizes Spirituality, with Welfare, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 41.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Great Rhinelandian economy, worth 7.53 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,707 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Great Rhineland to be bombproof, a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Rhineland's national animal is the Bull Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Rhineland is ranked 159,209th in the world and 17th in Atlantic for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 593.3 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
