Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Mother Empire of Retro Lyra is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Rodrick Jones with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.16 billion Retro Lyrans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hollo Caverns. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Retro Lyran economy, worth 492 trillion Zeldian Rupees a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 60,351 Zeldian Rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, only the wealthy can afford monorail fares, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Retro Lyra's national animal is the llama with hats, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Retro Lyra is ranked 19,732nd in the world and 2nd in The Empire of Friendship for Lowest Crime Rates, with 81.15 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
