|Leader||Empress Elise II|
The Noble Empire of Lysandus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Elise II with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.996 billion Lysandeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bardan. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Lysandean economy, worth a remarkable 4,854 trillion Couronnes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 323,739 Couronnes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing, they say that Lysandeans made a dessert and called it peace, and up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lysandus's national animal is the Salamander, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Pantarism.
