The E-Democracy of The Rhein States is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 12.945 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 4,839 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 373,866 Rheiner Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and dictionary sales have hit an all-time high. 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 128,200th in the world and 5,724th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 217.03 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
