The High Populated State of Turtle Town is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Blue Kaiba with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, infamous sell-swords, and ritual sacrifices. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 3.876 billion Townians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiny Tim. The average income tax rate is 56.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Townian economy, worth 445 trillion Water Stones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 115,027 Water Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Turtle Town is suspiciously populated compared to its neighbors, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, and guns don't kill people — heroes do. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turtle Town's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Dracoism.

Turtle Town is ranked 155,490th in the world and 36th in Monarchist and Democratic Alliance for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.56 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
