The Spacefaring Warrior Armada of Tethys 13 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The 13 Fleet Representatives with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 23.693 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Deep. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Tethysi economy, worth a remarkable 5,672 trillion Honours a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 239,429 Honours, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

New pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, Tethys 13 isn't what it used to be, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. 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 186,064th in the world and 6,579th in Osiris for Most Avoided, scoring 0.72 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
