The Silence Breakers of Turbeaux is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Edward Abbey's head with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.625 billion Turbeauxers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nacelle. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Turbeauxian economy, worth 476 trillion Turbocoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 181,570 Turbocoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, the nation has returned to more conventional warfare to slaughter its enemies, and the national water supply has entered detox. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Turbeaux's national animal is the tribble, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Machine Worship.

Turbeaux is ranked 26,207th in the world and 130th in Forest for Highest Drug Use, scoring 95.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
