Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Smoke Crystal Leth and Crash of Lethen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Malcolm Mason with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 22.25 billion Lethenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arnhelm. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Lethenian economy, worth a remarkable 5,245 trillion Golden Farbs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 235,739 Golden Farbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Lethen's many privately-owned prisons, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime is almost non-existent. Lethen's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Masonic love fest.

Lethen is ranked 1,005th in the world and 10th in Europeia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 488.7 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
