|Citadel of Ricks|
|First mentioned in:||Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind|
The Citadel of Ricks was the secret headquarters where the Council of Ricks congregates. It also appears to be a leisure point and meeting point for Ricks and their Mortys from various dimensions.
Through various universes, Rick has been involved through resistance groups against the Galactic Federation, as well as other groups who consider his genius a threat, such as galactic terrorists, sub-galactic dictators and most of the entire Intergalactic government. To protect themselves and hide from opposing groups, a "few thousand" alternate versions of Rick decided to join together and create their own society. It is presumed the Citadel was in a dimension specifically created by Ricks, similarly to how Evil Rick created his dimension.
A force referred to as the "Citadel's militia" performed military and security duties for the Council of Ricks, headed by a commander-in-chief. The militia was comprised mostly of uniformed Ricks, but some Mortys could also be seen in their ranks. SEAL Team Ricks appeared to be an elite component of the militia.
Since many Ricks are against the idea of forming a government due to his own political views, a group "anti-Rick" activists are known to exist. Such Ricks include C-137 and The Scientist Formerly Known As Rick.
As of The Rickshank Rickdemption, the headquarters has been destroyed due to Rick C-137 teleporting the entire base into a Galactic Federation prison, killing many Ricks and Mortys as a result, including that of the Council of Ricks. As far as we know this leaves the remains of the Citadel in the replacement dimension, whereas before it was not mentioned what dimension the Citadel was in.
The Citadel was located within an orange/brown nebulae, and was a large structure with a central glass dome, with three separate, smaller domes protruding from it. Several metallic plates extend from the bottom, presumably housing machinery used to keep the Citadel in stable flight.
The interior of the Citadel has a mixture of metal structures and natural fauna, with numerous fountains trees with several curved buildings. Somewhere within the Citadel, a large statue depicting an unspecified Rick was seen sitting in a central column.
In the middle of the Citadel, there was a teleportation room, which was capable of teleporting the whole Citadel to an chosen location. It was fuelled by the same green energy within the Portal Gun of every Rick.
