The Wanderers' Confederation of Lysset is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Den'Avel nar Lysset with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.207 billion Lyssetani enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khennisa City. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyssetani economy, worth a remarkable 1,837 trillion Gold Loscus a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,542 Gold Loscus, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lysset's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Lysset is ranked 23,847th in the world and 20th in Equestria for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,487 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
