The Gleeful Anatrepocracy of Sierra Lyricalia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by everyone and no one with a fair hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.632 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 Welfare, Healthcare, 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 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lyrical economy, worth a remarkable 2,578 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,242 ₦anotech dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists. 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 980th in the world and 10th in Anarchy for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 86 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
