The Marauding Weaponised Planet of Tethys 13 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Planetsplitter Extinctionfist with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.059 billion Tethysi 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 large, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Core. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Tethysi economy, worth a remarkable 1,988 trillion laser cannons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 110,138 laser cannons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tethys 13's national animal is the alien fish monster, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Tethys 13 is ranked 78,531st in the world and 2,503rd in Osiris for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 856.36 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
