The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and renowned for its vat-grown people, digital currency, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.111 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, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment and Social Policy not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bredubar. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth an astonishing 18,635 trillion Varessan crowns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 502,168 Varessan crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, it is still not known if the commander in chief outranks the supreme commander, and international trade is a sticky issue. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Lyras's national animal is the Lyran Drop Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lyras is ranked 2,698th in the world and 5th in Greater Dienstad for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 918,735 Standard Monetary Units.
