Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The VRCC Security Office of The Stinkpot Turtle is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Turtle with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 18.847 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mud Puddle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.4%.

The powerhouse The Stinkpot Turtlean economy, worth a remarkable 1,655 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 87,861 turtle shells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 316,018 per year while the poor average 17,484, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the The Stinkpot Turtle Blood Tithe, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and politicians take citizens for idiots. 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 8th in Vatican II and 143,790th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
