Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The War-torn imperial planet of Tethys 13 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bilbo Baggins with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.053 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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Inevitable City. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Tethys 13ian economy, worth 560 trillion mushrooms a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. Average income is 46,522 mushrooms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself. 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 2,717th in Osiris and 107,694th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -56 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
