The Theocratic Kingdom of Rykirys is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Marsant Leoni Baxardius the Third with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.546 billion Rykirans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Spirituality, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiroan. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rykirysian economy, worth a remarkable 1,033 trillion Ebuels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,482 Ebuels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', and the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rykirys's national animal is the Llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Because look how big it is.

Rykirys is ranked 215,667th in the world and 28th in Taijitu for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -63.57 on the Hayek Index.
