The Federal Repubilc of Republic of Turbin is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Klaus Hedricks with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.248 billion Turbinians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grandure Of Turbin City. The average income tax rate is 4.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Turbinian economy, worth 948 trillion Lopes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 180,688 Lopes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Scientific progress marches ever forward with the first ever launch of a cheeseburger into space, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside, and on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons. Crime is totally unknown. Republic of Turbin's national animal is the Turbinian Purple Snail, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Republic of Turbin is ranked 1,812th in the world and 3rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 11,111.25 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
