Tethys 13

LeaderThe Grand Council

AnimalFeathered Eel

The Aquatic Librarian Knights of Tethys 13 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Grand Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 25.181 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 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Tethysi economy, worth a remarkable 6,386 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 253,629 Book-Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The team in charge of creating a new writing system have spent months deciding whether or not to use serif or sans-serif characters, the comic book series 'The Grand Council and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, and former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage. 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 1,285th in the world and 45th in Osiris for Highest Economic Output, with 6,386 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
