Turtle Island Coalition

Population266 million


The Allied States of Turtle Island Coalition is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 266 million Turtalians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Turtle Island Coalitionian economy, worth 6.20 trillion Choes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 23,310 Choes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extreme political groups are outlawed, the government is financing an extremely costly war against malaria, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turtle Island Coalition's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Turtle Island Coalition is ranked 203,588th in the world and 160th in Refugia for Most Developed, scoring 50.7 on the Human Development Index.
