Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

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, humorless population of 18.306 billion Stinkpot Turtles are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Healthcare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mud Puddle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The thriving The Stinkpot Turtlean economy, worth a remarkable 1,506 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 Pizza Delivery. Average income is 82,287 turtle shells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 265,942 per year while the poor average 19,241, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, an IT mega-corporation has a patent pending on the rectangle, lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Stinkpot Turtle's national animal is the click beetle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Stinkpot Turtle is ranked 2nd in Vatican II and 2,792nd in the world for Most Primitive, scoring 83 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
