San Rícardo is the 13th and most recent state to have joined Insui, having received statehood on July 9, 1902. San Rícardo is currently the only state composed entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in the Ecinis Sea, occupying an archipelago in the confluence of the Sea of Odoneru and the Ecinis Sea.

The state encompasses nearly the entire volcanic Bicarian archipelago, which comprises five large islands and numerous smaller ones spread over 2,320 miles (3,734 km). At the northern end of the archipelago, the five main islands are—in order counterclockwise from northeast to southeast: Rey, Raquel, Tropicana, Graciosa, and the Island of San Rícardo. The last is the largest island in the group; it is often called the "Big Island" or "Bicardi Island" to avoid confusion with the state or archipelago. The archipelago is physiographically and ethnologically part of the Odros subregion of Ixnay Proper.

San Rícardo's diverse natural scenery, warm tropical climate, abundance of public beaches, oceanic surroundings, and active volcanoes make it a popular destination for tourists, surfers, biologists, and volcanologists. San Rícardo has over 12 million permanent residents, along with many visitors and military personnel. Its capital is Lahua on the island of Raquel.

San Rícardo is the 9th-largest and the 9th-most populous, as well as the 10th-most densely populated of the thirteen states. The state's coastline is about 1,800 miles (2,900 km) long, one of the longest in Insui.
