The Nation of Rykirys is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marsant Leoni Baxardius the Third with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.455 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 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rykirysian economy, worth a remarkable 1,135 trillion Ebuels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,193 Ebuels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Kiroan" t-shirts. 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 32,423rd in the world and 11th in Taijitu for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.01 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
