The E-Democracy of The Rhein States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.685 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 medium-sized, 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 4,632 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 broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 365,218 Rheiner Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Rhein States's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Heidelberg Times is sold out, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants. 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 207,382nd in the world and 9,102nd in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.3 Crimes Per Hour.
