The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.557 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 9,534 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 373,055 Varessan crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces, gun ownership is compulsory, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. 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 2,051st in the world and 14th in Greater Dienstad for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 17,267.42 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
