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

The Sylvan Hive of Turbeaux is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairman Sheng-ji Yang with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.542 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 income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Sylvan economy, worth a remarkable 2,629 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, Soda Sales, and Tourism. 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 401,901 turbines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation is so apathetic that Transhumans can barely find the energy to bring new issues to the government, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, and frat-house partying has become the national pastime. 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.
