Roleplay Mentor

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 19.421 billion Lyrans 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.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, military spending recently hit a new high, Lyras's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, and billions of Varessan crowns are being blown on orbital weapons development. 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 52nd in Greater Dienstad and 117,353rd in the world for Nicest Citizens, with -164 Smiles Per Hour (net).
