The Colony of Lyra 018 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and parental licensing program. The quiet, industrious population of 1.565 billion Stargazers 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 government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 31.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lyra 018ian economy, worth 87.6 trillion Vegas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,990 Vegas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, a major religion has been named as Lyra 018's national religion, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Lyra 018 in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyra 018's national animal is the Falling Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Lyra 018 is ranked 108,558th in the world and 1,804th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Governments, scoring 12.73 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
