The Community of Lythrum is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 282 million Lyth love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 62.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Lythrim economy, worth 10.5 trillion yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 37,149 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, the dwindling faithful in the nation make expensive pilgrimages to the remaining places of worship, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, and reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lythrum's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lythrum is ranked 31,515th in the world and 174th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.01 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
