Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.108 billion Lyrans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bredubar. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth a remarkable 7,319 trillion Varessan crowns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 316,736 Varessan crowns, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Varessan crown battlesuits, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Lyran military unleashed its biological weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Lyras's national animal is the Lyran Drop Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lyras is ranked 11,071st in the world and 14th in Greater Dienstad for Most Corrupt Governments, with 82.73 Kickbacks Per Hour.
