The Empire of Grand Rheinland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Ridward with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.869 billion Rheinlandians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 81.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Grand Rheinlandian economy, worth 816 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 167,655 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grand Rheinland's national animal is the Grand Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Colonial Religion.

Grand Rheinland is ranked 12,378th in the world and 309th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 53.84 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
