The War-torn imperial planet of Tethys 13 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Bilbo Baggins with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.562 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, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, 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 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Tethys 13ian economy, worth 531 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 45,958 mushrooms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, anti-government web sites are springing up, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. 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 351st in Osiris and 8,537th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 204 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
