The Inter-Galactic Empire of Lyncis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Gneaus with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 4.772 billion Lyncisians 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 Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prefactlas. The average income tax rate is 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lyncisian economy, worth 524 trillion BCS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,882 BCS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

High school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyncis's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Lyncis is ranked 20,726th in the world and 1,049th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 57.32 Quips Per Hour.
