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 pith helmet sales, smutty television, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.871 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth a remarkable 8,066 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 337,915 Varessan crowns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,012,233 per year while the poor average 88,168, a ratio of 11.5 to 1.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. 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 54,230th in the world and 30th in Greater Dienstad for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 2,373.76 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
