The VRCC Security Office of The Stinkpot Turtle is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mister Turtle with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 23.611 billion Stinkpot Turtles are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mud Puddle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The powerhouse Stinkpot Turtley economy, worth a remarkable 2,173 trillion turtle shells a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 92,043 turtle shells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 315,239 per year while the poor average 19,741, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

The government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Stinkpot Turtle's national animal is the click beetle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Stinkpot Turtle is ranked 143,761st in the world and 6th in Vatican II for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.53 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
