The Nation of Rykirys is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Marsant Leoni Baxardius the Third with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.197 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 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rykirysian economy, worth a remarkable 1,211 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 91,791 Ebuels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt. 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 9,817th in the world and 6th in Taijitu for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,314.87 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
