The Theocratic Kingdom of Rykirys is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Marsant Leoni Baxardius the Third with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.729 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiroan. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rykirysian economy, worth 764 trillion Ebuels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,585 Ebuels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, and the sanitised and dull music festivals of Rykirys are famed for their reasonable volume levels. 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 105,798th in the world and 26th in Taijitu for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.53 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
