The Pursuers of Rykil is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Undetermined with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.959 billion Rykilians 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Undetermined. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rykilian economy, worth 896 trillion Undetermineds 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 226,491 Undetermineds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Vaccinations are mandatory, Undetermined is a police state during international summits, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. 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 Undetermined, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Undetermined.

Rykil is ranked 149,480th in the world and 36th in The Galactic Imperium for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -9 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
