The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.954 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 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth a remarkable 9,715 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 374,336 Varessan crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, the government has become increasingly militant, and the government violently suppresses separatist movements. 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 5,283rd in the world and 8th in Greater Dienstad for Most Influential, scoring 6,226 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
