The Island Kingdom of The Lava Turtle is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Queen Lava of the Lava Turtle with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 982 million Lava Turtlians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turlava. The average income tax rate is 53.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong a Lava Turtle economy, worth 90.5 trillion Fire Shells a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,122 Fire Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Torture is illegal, a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Green Sea Turtle sacrifices, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Lava Turtle's national animal is the Green Sea Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Lava Turtle is ranked 5,398th in the world and 1st in Isles of Lava and Space for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.04 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
