The Primeval Megafauna of Woolly Rhinoceros is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Behemoth Horn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.742 billion Woolly Rhinos hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 Mammoth Steppe. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rhino economy, worth 216 trillion ivory coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,291 ivory coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, the children of Woolly Rhinoceros are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Woolly Rhinoceros's national animal is the Woolly Hippopotamus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Galleon's Lap.

Woolly Rhinoceros is ranked 197,153rd in the world and 11th in The House at Pooh Corner for Most Primitive, scoring -347.11 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
