“Not only does God play dice, the dice are loaded.” Chairman Sheng-ji Yang

|Leader||Chairman Sheng-ji Yang|
The Transhuman Hive of Turbeaux is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chairman Sheng-ji Yang with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.065 billion Transhumans 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 99.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Transhuman economy, worth a remarkable 2,345 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, Book Publishing, Tourism, 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 386,788 turbines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, a degree in Chairman Sheng-ji Yang Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Turbeaux's national animal is the mind worm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Quantum Mechanics.
