Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.196 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 Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bredubar. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth a remarkable 4,987 trillion Varessan crowns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 246,930 Varessan crowns, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

An increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Lyras's national animal is the Lyran Drop Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lyras is ranked 59th in Greater Dienstad and 143,907th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -83 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
