The E-Democracy of The Rhein States is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.958 billion Rhein Statesians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heidelberg. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Rhein Statesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,494 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 250,472 Rheiner Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, Calvinball players are lost for days as they wander the vast halls of their new academies, and there is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes. 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 Adelaar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Existentialism.

The Rhein States is ranked 35,544th in the world and 2,128th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.91 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
