The Federal Repubilc of Republic of Turbin is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Klaus Hedricks with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.076 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 5.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Turbinian economy, worth 904 trillion Lopes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,278 Lopes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

More than one company makes the board game Monopoly, citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, kids only know what plants are because they've seen them on the television, and old spellbooks are only useful as door-stops or toilet roll substitute. 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 18,900th in the world and 1,000th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 82.74 on the Human Development Index.
