The Sylvan Hivə of Turbeaux is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chairman Shəng-ji Yang with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.698 billion Transhumans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nacəllə. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sylvan economy, worth a remarkable 2,755 trillion gluons 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 Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. 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 amazing 411,376 gluons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, the election for Chairman Shəng-ji Yang's office's janitor is heating up, and an inkwell of goats' blood is supplied on school desks across the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Turbeaux's national animal is the mind worm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Quantum Məchanics.

Turbeaux is ranked 220,652nd in the world and 395th in Forest for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -41.11 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
