The Queendom of Lyovia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dread Queen Seinre Verai with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.897 billion Forsaken are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandora. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Forsaken economy, worth a remarkable 1,777 trillion Tears a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,083 Tears, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, Forsaken housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Dread Queen Seinre Verai, and oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyovia's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a major religion.

Lyovia is ranked 6,802nd in the world and 7th in The Crown Federation of Recon for Highest Economic Output, with 1,777 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
