The VRCC Security Office of The Stinkpot Turtle is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Turtle with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.653 billion Stinkpot Turtles are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mud Puddle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.5%.

The powerhouse The Stinkpot Turtlean economy, worth a remarkable 1,827 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 Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 92,963 turtle shells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 339,851 per year while the poor average 18,037, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 9th in Vatican II and 107,317th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -180 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
