The Reinland empire

Population384 million


The Empire of The Reinland empire is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 384 million Reinland empireans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 8.9%.

The thriving Reinland empirean economy, worth 31.3 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 81,569 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Reinland empire's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Reinland empire is ranked 81,037th in the world and 4,463rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.38 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
