The Colony of Lyra 043 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.096 billion Stargazers 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, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 25.9%.

The strong Lyra 043ian economy, worth 56.6 trillion Vegas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,659 Vegas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The same 1096 social media bloggers always loudly and immediately agree with Leader's every word on Twitcher, thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and the main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyra 043's national animal is the Falling Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Lyra 043 is ranked 104,953rd in the world and 3,412th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 819.08 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
