The E-Democracy of The Rhein States is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 12.931 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 4,830 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 373,566 Rheiner Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', tourists visit The Rhein States to mass-moon Rhein Statesian politicians, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, and board shorts have replaced board rooms. 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 35,933rd in the world and 1,479th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 3,488.22 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
