Lyras was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 274

The Protectorate of Lyras is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warmarshal Leon Krell with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.484 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 16,690 trillion Varessan crowns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 498,468 Varessan crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection, counselors diagnose their clients with motherboard complexes, and the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network. 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 131st in the world and 2nd in Greater Dienstad for Highest Economic Output, with 16,690 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
