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 renowned for its frequent executions, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The humorless population of 14.665 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 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Tethys 13ian economy, worth 856 trillion mushrooms a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,438 mushrooms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, the government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. 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 128,044th in the world and 3,247th in Osiris for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -1.41 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
