The Interstellar Direction of Rykil is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Speaker Ald-Pbelikal with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 6.002 billion Rykiliaxes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 Orquuol. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Rykiliaxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,337 trillion Cykrs a year, is broadly diversified and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 222,785 Cykrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, third world countries are rich in "I Love Orquuol" t-shirts, and uploading purple prose to social media earns a place on a government watchlist. 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 Scummat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.

Rykil is ranked 24,800th in the world and 7th in Laotis for Most Cultured, scoring 78 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
