The Enlightened Queendom of Rhydychen is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Arianna with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 7.68 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oxonia. The average income tax rate is 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhydychen's national animal is the ddraig goch, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the punt sterling.

Rhydychen is ranked 5th in The League of Just Nations and 119,137th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
