The Kingdom of Turtolen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Victoria Leathen Seamore with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.533 billion Turtonians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turtonia. The average income tax rate is 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Turtolenian economy, worth 98.2 trillion turtons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,064 turtons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and foreign powers often deal with problems that Turtolen can't handle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turtolen's national animal is the leather back sea turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Turtolen is ranked 47,988th in the world and 2,030th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,863.27 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
