Tethys 13

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 renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 25.124 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, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atr'Lyanteth'Ys. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tethysi economy, worth a remarkable 6,365 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 253,369 Book-Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, the blind lead the blind in social welfare, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Feathered Eels and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. 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 15,814th in the world and 847th in Osiris for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 329,989 Standard Monetary Units.
