The Sentai Team of PR Turbo is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by TJ with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.058 billion Rangers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel Grove. The average income tax rate is 82.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Power Ranger economy, worth 344 trillion coins 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Uranium Mining, Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an impressive 167,429 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Rangers, minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, Rangers caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PR Turbo's national animal is the zord, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cards.

PR Turbo is ranked 13,790th in the world and 3rd in The Sands for Largest Governments, scoring 29.46 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
