Roleplay Mentor

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 18.889 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.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Varessan crown battlesuits, strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Lyras, and military spending recently hit a new high. 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 43rd in Greater Dienstad and 109,545th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -1,209.5 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
