The Enlightened Kingdom of Rhydychen is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by King Matthew II with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.343 billion Rhydychenians 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.
Rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million punt sterlings of property damage, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, private law firms are unheard of, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 10,639th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 237 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
