The Protectorate of Lyra and Bon Bon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ponies-elect Lyra and Bon Bon with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.976 billion Equestians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyra and Bon Bon City. The average income tax rate is 10.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lyra and Bon Bonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,884 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 169,928 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime is totally unknown. Lyra and Bon Bon's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Friendship.

Lyra and Bon Bon is ranked 369th in the world and 4th in Pony Lands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.55 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
