The Protectorate of Lyra and Bon Bon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ponies-elect Lyra and Bon Bon with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.218 billion Equestians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, 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 6.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lyra and Bon Bonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,518 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 major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 165,476 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, billions of Bits are spent to take high-quality photos of the Human Nebula, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. 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 75,930th in the world and 36th in Pony Lands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,103.7 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
