The Federation of Riccy is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mike Krack with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.313 billion Riccyians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyme. The average income tax rate is 47.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Riccyian economy, worth 106 trillion Ricyias a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,204 Ricyias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Bike rage is all the rage, grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer, pedants defending Mike Krack observe that psychopaths and sociopaths aren't exactly the same thing, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riccy's national animal is the Jaguar, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Sugmanism.

Riccy is ranked 89,131st in the world and 3,959th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 84.6 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
