The Strutting Monkeywrenchery of Sierra Lyricalia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by everyone and no one with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 19.925 billion Lyricals hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Makhnovia. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lyrical economy, worth a remarkable 2,926 trillion ₦anotech dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,899 ₦anotech dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards, and being everyone and no one has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sierra Lyricalia's national animal is the blue pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is that every man and woman is a pope.

Sierra Lyricalia is ranked 832nd in the world and 5th in Anarchy for Least Corrupt Governments, with 97.55 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
