The Transhuman Hive of Turbeaux is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Chairman Sheng-ji Yang with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, infamous sell-swords, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.196 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 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Transhuman economy, worth a remarkable 2,426 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 391,630 turbines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mind Worm is one of the most popular forenames in Turbeaux, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and not many kids know Shakespeare's Hamlet but most of them have seen unofficial sequel Hamlet III - The Search For Osric. 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 12,305th in the world and 10th in Forest for Most Politically Free, scoring 92.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
