Roleplay Mentor

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 18.126 billion 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.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Varessan crown battlesuits, Lyras is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and Lyras's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers. 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 10th in Greater Dienstad2 and 5,855th in the world for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 6 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
