The Dirty Hot Mess of Lethen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Malcolm Mason with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 18.574 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.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arnhelm. The average income tax rate is 6.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lethenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,373 trillion Golden Farbs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 235,450 Golden Farbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

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 a capable 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, and its national religion is Masonic love fest.

Lethen is ranked 719th in Europeia and 95,374th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.051 Stalins.
