The Spacefaring Warrior Armada of Tethys 13 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The 13 Fleet Representatives with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 23.639 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 medium-sized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Deep. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tethysi economy, worth a remarkable 5,740 trillion Honours a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 242,824 Honours, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

Urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, there's a revolutionary culture in the nation's dairies, the government is pouring billions into replacement brains, and billions of Honours are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tethys 13's national animal is the Foreign Assassin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tethys 13 is ranked 3,000th in the world and 138th in Osiris for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 96.91 Effective Tax Rate.
