Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 22.066 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.

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 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth a remarkable 6,328 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 286,805 Varessan crowns, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending is on the increase, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Lyran Liberator", nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lyras's national animal is the Lyran Drop Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lyras is ranked 49th in Greater Dienstad and 129,361st in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -9 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
