Saint Rychard Department is the capital department of the Slinky Empyre. It was the first department in Slinky history.
The Royal Throne is located in the east region of Saint Rychard. The Royal Office building includes the View Deck, an observation deck built on the highest point in the Slinky Empyre. A weather station is located on the west side of the View Deck. The light post features a replica of a chess pawn in honor of the national sport of Keep Watch, the first nation to enter a state of friendship with the Slinky Empyre. Work is still being done on the View Deck, and no visitors should be allowed to visit it until a guard rail has been built. An inscription on the North Gate reads the phrase "The righteous shall flourish as a branch" in Slin-Englysh and French.
Branches Chapel is located in the western region of the department.

The 2009 Royal Geographic Survey took place before Saint Rychard was officially annexed. The results of this survey were the dimensions of the Royal Office structure, the exact boundaries of Saint Rychard Department, and the land area of the department (approximately one forty thousandth of an acre).
A census took place on July 1, 2009.
