The Federation of Lyjal is a huge, safe nation, notable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 266 million Lyjalians 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 Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sitari. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Lyjalian economy, worth 10.9 trillion Raloes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,875 Raloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, a milk bath costs more than bathing in money, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lyjal's national animal is the Guinea pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lyjal is ranked 17,852nd in the world and 1st in The Zitan League of Nations for Most Inclusive, scoring 146.38 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
