Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The War-torn imperial planet of Tethys 13 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Bilbo Baggins with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.836 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 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Tethys 13ian economy, worth 690 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 53,794 mushrooms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

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, sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, and the government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners. 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 3,674th in Osiris and 123,039th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 6 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
