The United States of Turbo Bolt is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 344 million Turbo Boltians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lulu. The average income tax rate is 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Turbo Boltian economy, worth 32.8 trillion Bits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 95,463 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, souvenir shops that sell alphorns are taking advantage of gullible tourists, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turbo Bolt's national animal is the Bronco, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Turbo Bolt is ranked 165,869th in the world and 7,651st in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 9.94 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
