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 notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.366 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, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bredubar. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth a remarkable 5,049 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 247,939 Varessan crowns, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, 90% of active duty LAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and the nation has declared war on all passing comets. 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 6th in Greater Dienstad and 1,852nd in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 41 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
