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 notable for its frequent executions, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.567 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 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth a remarkable 6,741 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 298,732 Varessan crowns, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. 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 187,111th in the world and 53rd in Greater Dienstad for Most Primitive, scoring -278.85 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
