The Heliarchy of Rykil is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Cyclic Command - Interim Above with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.202 billion Rykilians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

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 Rykil Prime. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rykilian economy, worth a remarkable 2,196 trillion Crytostandards a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 267,828 Crytostandards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. 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 Primordial Cells, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cosmic Angelicism.

Rykil is ranked 219,239th in the world and 42nd in The Galactics Union for Best Weather, with -226 Meters Of Sunlight.
