The Dirty Hot Mess of Lethen is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Malcolm Mason with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 18.185 billion Lethenites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Law & Order and Healthcare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arnhelm. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.

Malcolm Mason is the self-declared God of all Lethen, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lethen's national animal is the penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Masonic love fest, and its currency is the Golden Farb.

Lethen is ranked 1st in Europeia and 484th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 476 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
