The Red Fleet Marines of Lyrical International Brigade is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Compadre Mika Etchebéhère with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.027 billion Brigadieres Lyricales are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, with Defense, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciudád Durruti. The average income tax rate is 33.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Lyricál economy, worth 235 trillion libras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,012 libras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, pre-schoolers who draw stick figures of their favorite celebrities are sued for infringing image rights, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Brigadieres Lyricales any less frightened, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime is totally unknown. Lyrical International Brigade's national animal is the cerdo azul, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is absolutamente nada.

Lyrical International Brigade is ranked 123,533rd in the world and 177th in The Internationale for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 795.89 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
