Tremendous Turtle

Population32 million


The Sultanate of Tremendous Turtle is a small, orderly nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 32 million Tremendous Turtleans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Spirituality, although Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.8%.

The very strong Tremendous Turtlean economy, worth 2.08 trillion 8Balls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 64,967 8Balls, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 229,964 per year while the poor average 13,252, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Tremendous Turtle's national animal is the Turtle, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Tremendous Turtle is ranked 102,788th in the world and 59th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51 Whatever.
