The Federated Kingdom of Lysandus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by François IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.699 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 2,923 trillion lys 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 273,254 lys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

François IV's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and future leaders of Lysandus regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview. 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 pechie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Acolitism.

Lysandus is ranked 1,824th in the world and 3rd in Novo Brasil for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 17,693.79 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
