The Queen's State of Lysel is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.571 billion Lyselians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.5%.

The strong Lyselian economy, worth 640 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is 60,612 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 412,090 per year while the poor average 3,256, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, surveillance cameras are banned, mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot, and Lysel has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lysel's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Lysel is ranked 218,377th in the world and 7th in Nashville for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 20.19 Tourists Per Hour.
