The War-torn imperial planet of Tethys 13 is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Bilbo Baggins with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.172 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Inevitable City. The average income tax rate is 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

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, and its currency is the mushroom.

Tethys 13 is ranked 3,039th in Osiris and 111,916th in the world for Nudest, with 34 Cheeks per Square Mile.
