The Workers Rhineland Republics of Rhineland Ruhr and Alsace Lorraine is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ulrike Breizerc with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 18.814 billion Rhinelandruhrians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hyperion. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rhineland Ruhr and Alsace Lorrainean economy, worth a remarkable 3,707 trillion R-R AL 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 197,077 R-R AL Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, there's a politician called Male Infant Powers, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhineland Ruhr and Alsace Lorraine's national animal is the Gold Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Virtual Endless.

Rhineland Ruhr and Alsace Lorraine is ranked 2,930th in the world and 28th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 96.71 on the Human Development Index.
