The Federal Republic of Rhineheart is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.798 billion Rhineheartians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhine City. The average income tax rate is 46.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rhineheartian economy, worth 284 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 158,065 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Excited Romeos drive all the way to the next village for a date, the flesh-eating lost souls that wander at night serve as a major tourist attraction (Rhineheart has found 1 easter egg), no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, and prison visits increase substantially during election years. Crime is totally unknown. Rhineheart's national animal is the Rhine Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rhineheart is ranked 16,863rd in the world and 1,073rd in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,622.35 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
