The VRCC Security Office of The Stinkpot Turtle is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mister Turtle with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, parental licensing program, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.108 billion Turtles have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. 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 2,836 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 Pizza Delivery. Average income is 94,211 turtle shells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 297,300 per year while the poor average 22,810, a ratio of 13.0 to 1.

Boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand, the tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, and parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework. 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 43,192nd in the world and 2nd in Vatican II for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,497.29 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
