The Spacefaring Warrior Armada of Tethys 13 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sergius zho Ironsever with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 21.878 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 large, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Tethysi economy, worth a remarkable 4,644 trillion Honours a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 212,280 Honours, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence, former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tethys 13's national animal is the Foreign Assassin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tethys 13 is ranked 1,683rd in the world and 6th in Osiris for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 94 Valid Endorsements.
