The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 32.814 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 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyran economy, worth an astonishing 16,441 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 a breathtaking 501,037 Varessan crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

After every storm there's an expensive government-funded rainbow, vacationing Lyrans expect to be treated as royalty, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Lyras, and the government has become increasingly militant. 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 24,633rd in the world and 27th in Greater Dienstad for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 7.7 Bank.
