Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.903 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 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 7,191 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 314,013 Varessan crowns, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Lyran Liberator", Lyras is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace. 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 61st in the world and 2nd in Greater Dienstad for Largest Black Market, with 6,203 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
