Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The VRCC Security Office of The Stinkpot Turtle is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Turtle with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 22.212 billion Stinkpot Turtles are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mud Puddle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The powerhouse Stinkpot Turtlean economy, worth a remarkable 2,070 trillion turtle shells a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 93,201 turtle shells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 333,430 per year while the poor average 18,702, a ratio of 17.8 to 1.

Pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, applications to enter seminaries spike right before the obligatory fasts, military recruitment numbers are down as citizens object on 'moral grounds', and atheists are heavily taxed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Stinkpot Turtle's national animal is the click beetle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Stinkpot Turtle is ranked 175,358th in the world and 11th in Vatican II for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -16.12 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
