Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The War-torn imperial planet of Tethys 13 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Bilbo Baggins with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The humorless population of 15.622 billion Tethys 13ians 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 enormous government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Inevitable City. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Tethys 13ian economy, worth 860 trillion mushrooms a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,059 mushrooms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public intoxication has decreased ever since fraternities were banned, the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, there is a dearth of space for new houses, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tethys 13's national animal is the hobbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tethys 13 is ranked 21,512th in the world and 1,044th in Osiris for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 76.44 Effective Tax Rate.
