The Syndicalist Confederation of Lyrakia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Father Marx with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.071 billion Lyrakians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyrak. The average income tax rate is 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Lyrakian economy, worth 151 trillion Lyraki Kroner a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 73,173 Lyraki Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Father Marx spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, and patriotic parents remind their children to drink plenty of water. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyrakia's national animal is the Flamingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Marxism.
