The Cloud Cuckooland of Rhina is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sargon The Grape with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, rampant corporate plagiarism, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.006 billion Rhinese enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akkad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rhinese economy, worth a remarkable 2,138 trillion liens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 133,615 liens, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, charities reserve the right to not help those who go against religious teachings, and it's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Rhina's national animal is the Grimm, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The New Faith.

Rhina is ranked 69,964th in the world and 15th in New Hyperion for Longest Average Lifespans, with 74.36 Years.
