The VRCC Security Office of The Stinkpot Turtle is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Turtle with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 17.721 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mud Puddle. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Gambling industries.

Most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, the government has taken a 'sort it out yourselves' approach to fighting malaria, and research into 'designer babies' is banned. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Stinkpot Turtle's national animal is the click beetle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Catholicism, and its currency is the turtle shell.

The Stinkpot Turtle is ranked 9th in Vatican II and 109,323rd in the world for Nicest Citizens, with -40 Smiles Per Hour (net).
