The Kingdom of Rheinland-Westphalia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 340 million Rheinland-Westphalians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Köln. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rheinland-Westphalian economy, worth 28.6 trillion Deutsche-Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 84,126 Deutsche-Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, the government is spending billions of Deutsche-Marks on helping citizens find spiritual enlightenment, and economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rheinland-Westphalia's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rheinland-Westphalia is ranked 189,815th in the world and 917th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.74 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
