|Animal||Great Polar Bear|
The Pretitle of Rykil is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Clan Heads with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, zero percent divorce rate, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.9 billion Rykilians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dirselik. The average income tax rate is 92.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Rykilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,110 trillion Casons a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 226,609 Casons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
The restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived, commemoration of the Great The Alterran Republic War costs almost as much as the war itself, only adults may purchase violent video games, and trespassers entering Clan Heads's office are immediately vaporized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rykil's national animal is the Great Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is National Religion.
