The E-Democracy of The Rhein States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 13.909 billion Rhein Statesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 5,645 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 405,903 Rheiner Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, refugees from other nations are flocking to The Rhein States's border, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and Heidelberg is a police state during international summits. Crime is totally unknown. 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 2,017th in the world and 72nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 6,548.12 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
