The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.064 billion Lyrans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment and Social Policy not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bredubar. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth an astonishing 14,706 trillion Varessan crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 489,175 Varessan crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

A new "thought police" branch is being developed, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, and squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Lyras's national animal is the Lyran Drop Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Lyras is ranked 35,932nd in the world and 36th in Greater Dienstad for Most Developed, scoring 63.24 on the Human Development Index.
