The E-Democracy of The Rhein States is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 12.912 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 4,819 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 373,234 Rheiner Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, Hermann von PŁckler-Muskau is spearheading a new fashion trend of wearing swimming goggles and medieval armour, refugees from other nations are flocking to The Rhein States's border, and diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left. 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 221,041st in the world and 9,966th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1559.28 on the Hayek Index.
