New Lyrane

Population18.611 billion

LeaderSosi Patorete


The Senate and People of New Lyrane is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Sosi Patorete with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 18.611 billion Rireinukave enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haru. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.8%.

The all-consuming Rireinuan economy, worth a remarkable 2,606 trillion peris a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 140,078 peris, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 439,964 per year while the poor average 34,148, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

The Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, the endangered saltwater humpback zwilnik is only seen in captivity programs, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, and intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works. Crime is totally unknown. New Lyrane's national animal is the zwilnik, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Lyrane is ranked 20,937th in the world and 10th in Rireinu for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 230.91 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
