Roleplay Mentor

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 18.179 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bredubar. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Varessan crown battlesuits, Lyras is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, Lyras's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Lyras. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Lyras's national animal is the Lyran Drop Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Varessan crown.

Lyras is ranked 35th in Greater Dienstad and 119,090th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
