The Holy Nationstates Turbofan of Turbeaux is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Edward Abbey's head with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and enforced nudity. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.198 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nacelle. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Turbeauxian economy, worth 721 trillion turbines 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, Tourism, Gambling, 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 225,763 turbines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, and the government decides its policies by observing the flight of birds. 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 377th in the world and 19th in Forest for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 21,036.53 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
