The Great Turtle Fence of Turtles Everywhere is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Reanimated Turtle Commander XIII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.764 billion Turtles Everywhereans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Sprawling Technoscape of Turtlania. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, Turtles Everywhere is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the study of medicine is popular throughout Turtles Everywhere, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Turtles Everywhere's border. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turtles Everywhere's national animal is the vulture for some reason, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Chelonism, and its currency is the turtloon.
