The E-Democracy of The Rhein States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.192 billion Rhein Statesians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heidelberg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rhein Statesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,217 trillion Rheiner Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 345,921 Rheiner Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of The Rhein States's radio stations, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Rhein States's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Absurdism.

The Rhein States is ranked 144,094th in the world and 8,778th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 34.17 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
