The Republic of Care Lyon is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Johnathan Halridge with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.164 billion Care Lyonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyon. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Care Lyonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,596 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 309,128 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Torture is illegal, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Care Lyon's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Care Lyon is ranked 166,983rd in the world and 8,534th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -12.65 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
