Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.913 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 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth a remarkable 5,221 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 249,676 Varessan crowns, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and the military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation. 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 33rd in Greater Dienstad and 21,198th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 3 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
