The People's Republic of Lyland is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 303 million Lyes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Lye economy, worth 15.4 trillion Snow Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,776 Snow Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, and shopping comes bagged and tagged. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyland's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lyland is ranked 49,437th in the world and 1,604th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,260.65 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
