The Federal Repubilc of Republic of Turbin is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Klaus Hedricks with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.069 billion Turbinians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grandure Of Turbin City. The average income tax rate is 5.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Turbinian economy, worth 903 trillion Lopes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,190 Lopes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, tumbleweeds made of litter adorn city streets, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges. Crime is totally unknown. Republic of Turbin's national animal is the Turbinian Purple Snail, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Republic of Turbin is ranked 47,877th in the world and 1,627th in Balder for Most Pro-Market, scoring 60.89 on the Rand Index.
