The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.636 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 15,787 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 499,027 Varessan crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, the military is plagued with unethical researchers, and the government defends a woman's right to choose. 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 12,163rd in the world and 23rd in Greater Dienstad for Lowest Crime Rates, with 89.43 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
