The Crystal leth dealing cabal of Lethen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Malcolm Mason with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 24.04 billion Lethenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arnhelm. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Lethenian economy, worth a remarkable 5,688 trillion Golden Farbs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 236,635 Golden Farbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lethen's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Masonic love fest.

Lethen is ranked 1,207th in the world and 19th in Europeia for Healthiest Citizens, with 28.4 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
