The Federal Island States of Turetel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Grand Turtle with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 17.026 billion Turetelians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turetel. The average income tax rate is 18.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Turetelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,533 trillion Turetelian Carbon Units a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 148,797 Turetelian Carbon Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Last minute own-goals raise the suspicious eyebrows of sporting authorities, Turetelian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about The Grand Turtle, The Grand Turtle has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, and the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Turetel's national animal is the turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Turetel is ranked 281,911th in the world and 7th in Greater Nova York for Most Patriotic, with 0.48 flags saluted per person per day.
