Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.113 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, 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth a remarkable 8,371 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 347,171 Varessan crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

School uniforms are compulsory, Lyras is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, meals are now followed by thirty minutes of mandatory exercise, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lyras's national animal is the Lyran Drop Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lyras is ranked 159,103rd in the world and 73rd in Greater Dienstad for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 7.11 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
