The Island Kingdom of The Lava Turtle is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Lava of the Lava Turtle with an even hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 2.634 billion Lava Turtlians 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 Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turlava. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse a Lava Turtle economy, worth 259 trillion Fire Shells a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,399 Fire Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, millions of devastated 7-year-olds are denied astronaut and ballerina training, and the comic book series 'Queen Lava of the Lava Turtle and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. 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 13,313th in the world and 1st in Isles of Lava and Space for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,179.22 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
