Tethys 13

Population24.899 billion

LeaderThe Grand Council

AnimalFeathered Eel

The Aquatic Librarian Knights of Tethys 13 is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Grand Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.899 billion Tethysi 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atr'Lyanteth'Ys. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tethysi economy, worth a remarkable 6,296 trillion Book-Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 252,892 Book-Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Tethysi politicians, billions of Book-Marks are being blown on orbital weapons development, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and ghost regiments exist only on paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tethys 13's national animal is the Feathered Eel, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Necronomiconianism.

Tethys 13 is ranked 203,837th in the world and 6,372nd in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 310.11 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
