The Sylvan Hivə of Turbeaux is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Shəng-ji Yang with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.445 billion Transhumans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, 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 Nacəllə. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sylvan economy, worth a remarkable 3,186 trillion gluons 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 428,063 gluons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, and boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers'. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, 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 Məchanics.

Turbeaux is ranked 43rd in the world and 1st in Forest for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 47,028.59 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
