The NSL Lyrical Rep of VIII Lyrical Int Brigade is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.922 billion VIII Lyrical Brigadiers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish VIII Lyrical Int Brigadean economy, worth 72.6 trillion nanotech dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 24,849 nanotech dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VIII Lyrical Int Brigade's national animal is the blue pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

VIII Lyrical Int Brigade is ranked 215,708th in the world and 4th in NSLeft for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.39 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
