The Rather Slow Nation of A Flying Turtle is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its lack of airports, unlimited-speed roads, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, devout population of 4.565 billion Flyers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turtle City. The average income tax rate is 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Flying Turtlean economy, worth 155 trillion Turtleses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,053 Turtleses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, the dartboard at the Flying Turtlean Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Leader's face, a major religion has been named as A Flying Turtle's national religion, and Leader has just been declared ruler of A Flying Turtle in an international press conference. Crime is well under control. A Flying Turtle's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

A Flying Turtle is ranked 114,579th in the world and 6th in Cyberius Confederation for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 879.49 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
