The Enlightened Kingdom of Rhydychen is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Matthew II with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.57 billion Rhydychenites 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 90%, 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.

Children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 1st in The League of Just Nations and 2,910th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 137 Dawkins.
