The Gold of The Rhein States is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hormann von PŁcklor-Muskau with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.72 billion Rhain Statasians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haidalbarg. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Rhain Statasian economy, worth a remarkable 3,070 trillion Gold 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 Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 286,389 Gold Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, common misteaks slip threw as the Issues Editing Team adds issues by the hundread (The Rhein States has found 2 easter eggs), and it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food'. 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 Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Absurdism.

The Rhein States is ranked 2,385th in the world and 107th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 8,624.3 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
