The Kingdom of The Ryukyu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Udou Akira with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.594 billion The Ryukyuans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shuri. The average income tax rate is 46.0%.

The all-consuming The Ryukyuan economy, worth 217 trillion Gils a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 83,894 Gils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Military recruitment numbers are down as citizens object on 'moral grounds', wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns, and protests are illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. The Ryukyu's national animal is the Black Tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Zen Buddhism.

The Ryukyu is ranked 1,187th in Lazarus and 24,044th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 119 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
