The Empire of Ryccia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister William Altrecht with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 20.269 billion Ryccians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 2,850 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 282,898th in the world and 9,824th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.51 Obesity Rate.
