The United Socialist Republic of Rhinemank is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Comrade Andon with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.226 billion Rhinemankians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhinestadt. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rhinemankian economy, worth 121 trillion Maches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 99,232 Maches, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rhinemank's national animal is the Coyote, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Rhinemank is ranked 3,745th in the world and 52nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.44 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
