The VRCC Security Office of The Stinkpot Turtle is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Turtle with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 18.121 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, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 3.6%.

The powerhouse The Stinkpot Turtlean economy, worth a remarkable 1,470 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 81,152 turtle shells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 274,198 per year while the poor average 17,764, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Most academic research has ground to a halt, main battle tanks stalk the woods of The Stinkpot Turtle in search of click beetles, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds. 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 8th in Vatican II and 56,602nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.322 Stalins.
