The Enlightened Kingdom of Rhydychen is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Matthew II with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.561 billion Rhydychenites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oxonia. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rhydychenonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,167 trillion punt sterlings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,158 punt sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one knows how to tie a reef knot, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhydychen's national animal is the manatee, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rhydychen is ranked 98,761st in the world and 3,225th in Balder for Most Authoritarian, with 0.16 Stalins.
