The Empire of Ryccia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Jose I of Ryccia with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.602 billion Ryccians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Daonlathas and Castiana. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ryccian economy, worth a remarkable 2,194 trillion Triangle Rocks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,638 Triangle Rocks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, only native-born Ryccians who have never left the nation are permitted to run for office, and dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ryccia's national animal is the Wild Bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ryccia is ranked 40,721st in the world and 1,348th in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4,250.17 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
