The Commonwealth of Lyethlenora is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 896 million Lyethlenorans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lyethlenoran economy, worth 95.4 trillion sheckels a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,467 sheckels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, the internet has been placed under government control, and witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyethlenora's national animal is the Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lyethlenora is ranked 68,049th in the world and 2,059th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 158.4105583394 Days.
