Population322 million

The People's Republic of Lyland is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 322 million Lyes 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, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 63.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Lye economy, worth 16.9 trillion Snow Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,555 Snow Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', and you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyland's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lyland is ranked 105,000th in the world and 3,825th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 65.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
