St. Rybicki (German: Sankt Rubicki), officially the City and Special Department of St. Rybicki, is the capital and largest city of the oriental republic of New Pomerelia in the United Provinces. As a regional capital in Cisplatina, St. Rybicki forms the country's third largest city (behind only TBC and TBC) and also serves as an important center for education and a growing bohemian cultural scene. Long considered Cisplatina's 'wild city' for its somewhat unorthodox political history, ethno-cultural diversity, and youth culture, St. Rybicki is located on the Masson River upstream of its mouth into the Mieczko Sea and has thus historically maintained an important role as a transport hub for the shipment of goods from northern New Pomerelia to the Atlantic Ocean. Furthermore, having being designated the capital of the New Pomerelian settlement in 1743 following increased Polish-Lithuanian emigration as a result of the Polish-Lithuanian Wars of Constitution, St. Rybicki is also the political and economic hub of New Pomerelia, and houses the base of operations for many of its largest and most important businesses and institutions. St. Rybicki is also home to the largest student population of any city in the United Provinces, with many of the country's top universities (including the University of St. Rybicki, Mieczko University, and the Cisplatinian National University) being located in the city.
