Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.737 billion Lyrans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt 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 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth a remarkable 6,849 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 301,261 Varessan crowns, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

The mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Lyras's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Lyras after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. 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 166,973rd in the world and 55th in Greater Dienstad for Least Corrupt Governments, with 69.39 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
