The Island Kingdom of The Lava Turtle is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Lava of the Lava Turtle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.81 billion Lava Turtlians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turlava. The average income tax rate is 64.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse a Lava Turtle economy, worth 181 trillion Fire Shells a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,384 Fire Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and the government says that Possession is nine-tenths of the Lore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Lava Turtle's national animal is the Green Sea Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Goddess Lua Pele.

The Lava Turtle is ranked 27,593rd in the world and 1st in Isles of Lava and Space for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,829.56 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
