Regional Influence: Dealmaker


The Syndicalist Republic of Rykkland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 30.863 billion Rykklanders love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rykkburgh. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rykklander economy, worth a remarkable 3,317 trillion Spesoj a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 107,496 Spesoj, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, a little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Rykkburgh Times is sold out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rykkland's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rykkland is ranked 17,593rd in the world and 19th in The Kodiak Republic for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 283.36 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
