The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.389 billion Lyrans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bredubar. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth a remarkable 9,247 trillion Varessan crowns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 364,214 Varessan crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, the government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Lyras's national animal is the Lyran Drop Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lyras is ranked 52,663rd in the world and 48th in Greater Dienstad for Smartest Citizens, with 35.29 Quips Per Hour.
