Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, national health service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.435 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 7,450 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 317,928 Varessan crowns, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Warmarshal Leon Krell's most personal functions, military service is compulsory, and Lyras's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers. 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 65,405th in the world and 35th in Greater Dienstad for Most Pro-Market, scoring 49.12 on the Rand Index.
