The Nation of Rykirys is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Marsant Leoni Baxardius the Third with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, triple-decker prams, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.081 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 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rykirysian economy, worth a remarkable 1,306 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 92,779 Ebuels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Getting your license is a rite of passage for young adults, if you die during a restaurant meal the government will pick up the bill, schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand, and both criminals and civilians are DOA. 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 13,830th in the world and 7th in Taijitu for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.89 years.
