The People's Republic of Terrapinne is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Communist Party of Terrapinne with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.142 billion Terrapinnes are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terrapinne Station. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Terrapinne economy, worth 463 trillion Bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,942 Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terrapinne's national animal is the Mink, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Terrapinne is ranked 265,829th in the world and 1,844th in The Communist Bloc for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -389.07 on the Hayek Index.
