The Republic of Care Lyon is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Johnathan Halridge with a fair hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, daily referendums, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.776 billion Care Lyonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyon. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Care Lyonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,810 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 313,499 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,263,441 per year while the poor average 51,989, a ratio of 24.3 to 1.

The debts of the father fall upon the son, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, murder is sanctioned if the legal paperwork is filled out correctly, and the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Care Lyon's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Care Lyon is ranked 158,278th in the world and 7,957th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 20.98 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
