The Transhuman Hive of Turbeaux is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairman Sheng-ji Yang with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, rampant corporate plagiarism, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.081 billion Transhumans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nacelle. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Transhuman economy, worth a remarkable 2,360 trillion turbines 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. 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 amazing 388,195 turbines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Turbeaux's national animal is the mind worm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Quantum Mechanics.

Turbeaux is ranked 200,758th in the world and 378th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -16.76 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
