Roleplay Mentor

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.853 billion Lyrans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bredubar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyrasian economy, worth a remarkable 4,835 trillion Varessan crowns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 243,580 Varessan crowns, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Lyras, military service is compulsory, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Lyras's national animal is the Lyran Drop Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lyras is ranked 39th in Greater Dienstad and 103,555th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -1 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
