|Leader||Empress Elise II|
The Noble Empire of Lysandus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Elise II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 11.025 billion Lysandeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bardan. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Lysandean economy, worth a remarkable 3,004 trillion Couronnes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 272,485 Couronnes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.
The government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing, and they say that Lysandeans made a dessert and called it peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lysandus's national animal is the Salamander, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Pantarism.
