The United Kingdom of Lyrava is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 296 million Lyravans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitol. The average income tax rate is 21.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lyravan economy, worth 29.4 trillion Galleons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 99,187 Galleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime is totally unknown. Lyrava's national animal is the Ant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lyrava is ranked 59,065th in the world and 2,725th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 96.33 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
