Roleplay Mentor

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 19.593 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.

Lyras's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, billions of Varessan crowns are being blown on orbital weapons development, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Lyras, and military service is compulsory. 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 13th in Greater Dienstad and 4,715th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
