The Republic of Lyallpur is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Cortana with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.425 billion Lyallpurians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faisalabad. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lyallpurian economy, worth 803 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,166 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Faisalabad has restaurants serving every meat from aardvark to zebra, all industry is owned and run by the government, the government builds houses for foreign newcomers, and athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyallpur's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lyallpur is ranked 6,692nd in the world and 104th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 13,149.75 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
