Sun worshiping turtles

Population26.683 billion


The Theocracy of Sun worshiping turtles is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 26.683 billion Sun worshiping turtlesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Sun worshiping turtlesian economy, worth 893 trillion bucks 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Automobile Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 33,490 bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sun worshiping turtles's national animal is the crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sun worshiping turtles is ranked 82,583rd in the world and 38th in Florida for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,918.98 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
