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 free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.484 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 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 4,457 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 357,075 Rheiner Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau panders to nontraditional families. 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 Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Absurdism.

The Rhein States is ranked 174,180th in the world and 8,002nd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -70.11 on the Rand Index.
