The VRCC Security Office of The Stinkpot Turtle is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mister Turtle with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 34.67 billion 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mud Puddle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The powerhouse turtley economy, worth a remarkable 3,398 trillion turtle shells a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 98,010 turtle shells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 276,663 per year while the poor average 27,794, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Basket-weaving is the nation's latest fad, sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, and new treatments are rejected if they cannot be explained using only one-syllable words. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 106,802nd in the world and 2nd in Vatican II for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,097.52 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
