Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Smoke Crystal Leth and Crash of Lethen is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Malcolm Mason with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 21.883 billion Lethenians 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 minute, outspoken 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 aren't funded at all. 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 5,023 trillion Golden Farbs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 229,544 Golden Farbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Arnhelm for fear of causing a fuss, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown. 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 133,190th in the world and 1,376th in Europeia for Most Authoritarian, with 0.06 Stalins.
