The Marxist People's Republic of Terrapinne is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Saint Stephen with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.833 billion Terrapinnes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terrapinne Station. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.
The thriving Terrapinne economy, worth 171 trillion Blizkits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. Average income is 93,327 Blizkits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, and white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terrapinne's national animal is the Polecat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
