The Republic of Fleur de Lys is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Charles André Alexandre Mécra with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.541 billion Lysiens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coeur. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Lysien economy, worth a remarkable 1,139 trillion Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 151,071 Francs, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, and CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fleur de Lys's national animal is the Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fleur de Lys is ranked 48,700th in the world and 44th in Eurth for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
