The Noble Empire of Lysandus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Elise II with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 13.476 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, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bardan. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lysandean economy, worth a remarkable 4,576 trillion Couronnes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 339,603 Couronnes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing, they say that Lysandeans made a dessert and called it peace, and up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on. 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.

Lysandus is ranked 94,248th in the world and 32nd in Novo Brasil for Most Politically Free, scoring 62.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
