Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Smoke Crystal Leth and Crash of Lethen is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Malcolm Mason with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 22.077 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, with Healthcare and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. 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 5,125 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 232,146 Golden Farbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime is relatively low. 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 153,264th in the world and 1,514th in Europeia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -42.43 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
