Republic of TurtleShroom: FACTBOOK

Republic of TurtleShroom World Factbook


The nation of TurtleShroom is a unique nation, one of which is like no other known in the world.

Inhabitants
The nation's population consists of two primary, sentient, and (as the page states), intelligent creatures.

*The first species is the turtle, literally. Chelonians of all types exist in this realm, from turtles to tortoises to terrapins, enjoying the sunny skies and lush climate of the country, the deserts in the northern fringes, and their famous lush forests to the lower area of the center of the state. The turtles are not anthropomorphic, they move like normal turtles (on all fours) and use tools with their mouths, moving very slowly unless using vehicles and methods of transportation (namely railroads).



*The other creature is a slightly anthropomorphic mushroom. Mushrooms in TurtleShroom consist of the fruiting body, or in other words, the part of the mushroom that you see. Mushrooms move about by levitating a few inches above the floor. They lack hands, arms, feet, and any bodily organs, but they do have eyes and a mouth on the cap of the mushroom, for speech and expression. To pick up items and maneuver things like hands would, the mushrooms have developed telekinesis, overcoming their limbless form. Mushrooms appear everywhere except the deserts, but require wet, dimly lit conditions to thrive. Thus, the concentration of mushrooms is mostly found in the central forests and the swamp to the southwest. Mushrooms, like in the real world generate by spores. To eat, they fall into piles of garbage and secrete digestive enzymes, absorbing the nutrients into them, like actual fungi.






Humans
There's a reason tourism in this country is so low. Let's just say it. Many TurtleShroom humans are simply UGLY.

Image


No one can explain this, but your average TurtleShroom adult male human is about eight feet in height, rarely if ever reaching nine. TurtleShroom females are about seven foot three, on average, and perverts are always disappointed to find that they have practically nothing to offer in the breast area (being quite flat-chested). Female humans also dress modestly, either in long pants (or pantsuits), shorts that descend to just below the kneecaps, or skirts of that length. If they wear anything shorter (except in places where it is socially acceptable, like those volleyball shorts), people question their morality and the idea of possible harlotry comes in.

Further, another trait is that humans in TurtleShroom have red eyes. By red, we don't mean some dull color, we mean red as in -|-->III<--|-, blood red.

Most TurtleShroom humans of both genders are scrawny, with little muscle on their arms or leg. Foreigners could grab a TurtleShroomer's wrist and find that his middle finger will touch this thumb when they do it.

Your average TurtleShroomer also has thick brown hair that has a 40/60 chance of falling out (if male) in their late twenties and turns completely white in their fifties.


    There's also flaws: horrible flaws and traits that disturb foreigners.
  • Most TurtleShroomers can't see too well, so they rely on glasses... -and not just any glasses: thick, black, heavy coke bottle glasses not unlike what you'd see on a cartoon. When wearing glasses, the lenses are so thick that the real color of their eyes are obscured, and the pupils are about all you can see, giving the humans a cartoon-esque appearence of having black dots for eyes, unless the glasses come off.

  • Then that accent. There are three accents in TurtleShroom. There's the formal one, where they talk like I am typing in this Factbook, there's the Marxist one ("Vhat? What is 'zis 'voney' you speak of?"), and, of course, the TurtleShroom signature/national accent. Derived from Old Southern American English (or the "Southern drawl") and immensely exaggerated, it really gets on the nerves of foreigners: "Ya'll ain't gone to invade THIS country! Do it and we may just launch our NOOKULAR WEAPONS on ya!!"
  • That's a flaw in and of itself. 79% of TurtleShroomers can't pronounce "nuclear" properly, saying it like ol' Dubya. NOOKULAR.

  • It gets worse. Neither turtles nor mushrooms have teeth. Therefore, the demand for dentists are low. Most TurtleShroomers don't have access to dentists. Fortunately, the flouride in TurtleShroom water ensures their teeth are glistening and white. However, the lack of dentists means an even greater lack of orthodontists. So, imagine if you will, the teeth of a hillbilly. Then, imagine these same teeth as white as those toothpaste commercials. THAT is what you'd be looking at in a TurtleShroom human's smile... UNLESS they have horrendous buck teeth.


    Image
  • Have you ever watched the Fairly OddParents? If so, you've caught yourself a glimpse of TurtleShroom's most distracting flaw in the human population. Many TurtleShroomers have large buck teeth. Foreigners have a hard time not looking at those teeth. The teeth, oh, the teeth, how can they be described? TurtleShroom buck teeth come in two formats. There's where the two front teeth are large and hang out of the human's mouth, and there's the more common version, where the teeth to the left and right of each top incisor jut out at the edges/corners of the human's lips, which is far more disturbing to those not used to it. The teeth jut out even when their mouth is completely closed.
    Image
    Bessford Be, one if the wealthiest TurtleShroomers in current times, exhibits the classic toothy flaw. Behind his glasses, his eyes are crimson red.[/url]


  • To top this off, many TurtleShroomers are highly devout, so they will speak of the "Lawd" every now and then, or quote the Bible, or something about religion.

  • Judges in TurtleShroom and many bureuacrats and employees wear golden pectoral crosses when on duty.

  • Most every TurtleShroomer of any species has a gun or a taser or some sort of weapon of self defense. It's like a Republican NRA paridise.

  • The vast majority of TurtleShroom humans are white. Also, they're gun-toting, conservative, Christian, single, pro-life, anti-gay, capitalist, and ugly looking.

  • Forty percent of TurtleShroomers are either single or celibate... for good reason.

  • Nearly all of them hate alcohol and are either absurd or serious business. They all look absurd, though.


    On the bright side, such hideous traits have instilled the populace with humility. You will never, EVER hear a TurtleShroomer boast of their "good looks", because they don't have any, unless they're men talking about facial hair. Sweet mustaches (without beards) are considered a sign of the elite and the well-off.

TurtleShroom humans are, by and large, very friendly people. If you can look past their hideous appearence and flaws, you can easily befriend them. Just look up; they're tall!





Currency
The currency of TurtleShroom is the skillet, literally the iron frying pan, to discourage use of said item to cook residents. Skillets are a major import from other nations in The Land Of Power and abroad.

Skillets are large and heavy (literally being iron frying pans), so denominations are widely used. A black Skillet is $1 USD. A yellow Skillet is $5 USD. A blue Skillet is $10 USD. A light-green Skillet is $20 USD. A dark-green Skillet is $50 USD. A grey Skillet is $100 USD. An orange Skllet is $1000 USD. An indigo-colored Skillet is $5000 USD. A white Skillet is $10,000 USD.

Your average Skillet is six inches in diamater, has a handle of four inches long, and weighs two pounds. Skillets are traditionally carried in portable suitcases with the citizen. They are made of solid iron. TurtleShroom imports more iron than all other nations in the Land of Power combined.


Transportation
The main form of transportation is the railroad, because it is the largest and most efficient way to transport goods and creatures from place to place. The mushrooms ride in converted cargo cars because of their dimply lit and damp conditions.

Roads are small-scale; highways in TurtleShroom are considered two-lane roads. Superhighways are viewed as a road consisting of a total of five lanes. The highest speed limit in TurtleShroom is 55 MPH.

Military Facts

Postby TurtleShroom » Fri Oct 16, 2009 10:40 am

Troops

Turtles can live up to 200 years (but most turtles die at 90 years), so many of the elders are in the military's high ranks. The low ranks almost entirely consist of mushrooms and humans. The longevity of turtles and durability of mushrooms (though they can't live nearly as long) make for a decent military.

Also, the nation has nuclear weaponry, a big boost to the armies.






DEFCON
Code: Select all
DEFCON Titles:
7 = International Peace
6 = All is Well
5 = Go and Buy a Gun
4 = Can't We Just Talk?!
3 = Get Ready...
2 = War
1 = Total War
0 = Operation: TOTAL CHANCELLOR
Code: Select all
DEFCON description:

Seven: the Republic is totally secure and is not threatened by anyone in any way. The military is at its lowest, with everyone else in Reserve.

Six: a potential emeny is looming. No worries, but increase the active military by about 100,000.

Five: Civillians of the Republic are encouraged to buy a gun if they don't have one, and to lock their doors at night. The active military goes up by about another 100,000. All reserved troops are schooled in TS fighting styles so that, if they need to get mobilzied quickly, they won't have to deal with training when they need to fight. Borders begin to recieve patrol.

Four: The Government gets nervous, and it's about this time that the Chancellors begin to freak out. They begin to arrange diplomacy and peaceful forum in a desperate attempt to stop an imminent conflict. Active military up by 100,000. Border patrol goes up. Police officers become more involved than their usual "everywhere"-ness, cracking down on everything from speeding to murder, and begins to go after crimes unsolved.

Three: Total Mobilization. All reserved troops the Chancellors can call are put onactive duty. Borders are locked; everyone coming in and out must prove who they are with ID or driver's license. They are forced to sign an oath that everything they say is true, and if they lie, they are guilty of perjury and can recieve double the usual punishment for any crime. Nothing is fired yet. They just get ready big time.

Two: Someone has attacked the Republic. A chunk of the totally mobilized military is dispatched, the rest are distributed where and when needed within and beyond TurtleShroom's borders. The military prepares for the worst. The fighting begins. Citizens still retain their freedoms as in peacetime, but must wear an ID badge to prove who they are.

One: Atomic energy recieves subsizing and the entire military tries to fight back. Everyone must wear an ID badge to prove who they are. They retain their most basic rights (free speech, free religion, fair trial, etc.),  but lose the right to Search Warrent and no extreme torture. They also lose habeus corpus to a point, though the trial must be fair.

Zero: OPERATION: TOTAL CHANCELLOR (Termination of Trust and Also Liberties to Conserve and Hold the Administration and Never Consolidate Entrances which Let Losers Overcome the Republic) is the last ditch effort. Turtles, humans, and mushrooms are seperated from each other and rounded up to secret bunkers. Each bunker can hold 1.5 billion creatures per for one yerar, six months. The Constitution is suspended,[i] except [/i]for free religion. The Chancellors remove their sashes and crowns and start don black robes with military helmets. The Chancellors are now the sole authorities in the country. It becomes a total autocracy and a test of their character. Folks hope that the Chancellors remain benevolent and caring, but in TOTAL CHANCELLOR emergencies, they can technically do anything. The Chancellors are also protected by swarms of bodygaurds and make addresses to their locked up populace covering the doomsday as it happens.

WEAPONS
TurtleShroom wrote:TurtleShroom is a PT and MT nation. The PT goes as far back as WWI, and all nuclear weapons are major PT (the Trinity Test, to be precise). The MT halts at 1999. There are no jets or air force. The few planes TurtleShroom has are modified passenger planes in the "Nookular" Branch (the three branches are army, navy, and nuclear/WMDs) used to deliver the nuclear weapons.

See this. For turtles, see this and this one here.


(Image)
^ THAT is the main non-gun military weapon of TurtleShroom. All soldiers have at least one of these, and abundant ammunition for them.



Many soldiers also have assorted sidearms, pistols, rifles, and revolvers, as well as a few grenades, from all time periods they existed.

The nation also carries elite "pie snipers" and "skillet snipers".

Despite the unintimidating name, Pie Snipers can hurl a cream pie from literally one hundred yards away. Don't laugh, because the pies aren't our main weapon, just a way of distracting you so the soldiers hiding nearby can toss grenades, tase you, or gun you down. You can't defend yourself too easily when covered in pie.

As for the Skillet Snipers, imagine getting hit by a frying pan. Now, imagine getting hit by a frying pan you never saw coming from three hundred feet away. Now, imagine that frying pan made of solid iron flying at half the speed of a real bullet. If you can STILL keep imagining, the sniper failed and didn't kill you. (How TurtleShroom makes an un-aerodynamic frying pan fly straight and true like a bullet is a top secret military design that we will NEVER tell.)


You'll also have to deal with a network of advanced, but comical, intelligence agents with the ability to wiretap most any phone line. Read this, and click this for a vivid description of PRECISELY how a wiretap works in TurtleShroom. (...and watch out for spies: in your attic, raiding your fridge.)



Our biggest, most dangerous asset is our seven hundred thousand "nookular" warheads, each atomic fission bombs with the explosive equivalent of the Trinity Test. Of these seven hundred thousand, only five hundred are hooked up to a means of delivery, like a missile, though a TS nuclear "missile" is just an explodable Saturn V rocket. The rest have to be delivered manually.



Here's a popular weapon in TurtleShroom...

Image


Indeed, the nation's currency, the Skillet, is also a great weapon. You'd be impressed at what damage a frying pan can do. Cannons, battleship guns, and such can shoot Skillets as good as they can shoot conventional ammunition. They have interchangable parts that soldiers can swap to shoot pans or ammunition.

The turtles of the nation can also do this. It's very painful up close.


Guns in the Republic are abundant (the right to bear arms is very powerful), so most citizens have some sort of firearm. The military gives as standard issue a shotgun as its weapon. It's not very powerful, but it's fairly easy to reload and its bullets are abundant. They all carry guns with the other stuff and are not at all afraid to shoot when it must be done. However, most citizens in the republic prefer non-lethal alternatives like skillets and tasers, but pretty much everyone also has a real gun. If someone invaded TurtleShroom, they'd have to face the entire populace. Most TurtleShroomers are willing to fight for their homeland and their God to the death.

TurtleShroom used to have flying battleships...
Image
...-but those were all destroed and "sunken" in the attacks that killed the Chancellors.


YOUR AVERAGE TURTLE SOLDIER


THAT'S A VERY NICE MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT YOU HAVE THERE; IT'D BE A SHAME IF SOMETHING WERE TO HAPPEN TO IT.

BIOMES

TurtleShroom is a country of diverse landscapes. Below is a map of the major biomes of TurtleShroom.

The mushrooms are almost exclusive to the rainforests, but they also exist in the southeastern grasslands. The turtles are sparsed evenly throughout, while humans concentrate on the fringes of the forest and desert, and in the grasslands. Cacti, a non-native arid plant, have beeb spotted in various portions of the desert.

Slave Code

Postby TurtleShroom » Tue Mar 16, 2010 4:56 pm

Slavery is completely banned from the Republic of TurtleShroom. By law, if a slave owner brings their slave into TurtleShroom, and if a police officer or surveillence camera can confirm that one of the visitors is indeed a slave, the slave is handed a certificate of emancipation and becomes a free creature that is protected under TurtleShroom law, so long as they carry the card. Freed slaves can then apply for citizenship in the nation after one month of living there and after passing a citizenship test.
However, if a slave is to exit the borders, they can be captured and enslaved by their former masters once more. TurtleShroom holds about fifteen thousand residents that were once slaves, and 94% of them are now citizens. TurtleShroom's railroads are also forbidden for use by the slave trade, and any slave caught on a train also recieves an emancipation certificate and can apply for citizenship in one month after. Most Black Marketing goes to basket weaving, and there is little to no known slave trade due to the survellience cameras in public places.

The man who runs the TurtleShroom account also runs the nation of Bulblax. It is a Pikmin II themed country ran by bulborbs and Pikmin baddies. Please, check them out, too!

The nation of Bulblax is a novelty attempt by TurtleShroom to create a second/puppet nation. This nation is themed after the old Pikmin II game, for those who have actually heard of it.

HISTORY OF TURTLESHROOM

Postby TurtleShroom » Sun May 30, 2010 7:06 pm

TurtleShroom wrote:The Holy Republic of TurtleShroom was but a terra nullus wilderness when the first human Christian missionaries discovered it in the 1760s. Decades of exploration led to the astonishing discovery of sentient turtles and mushrooms all over the rainforests, swamps, and deserts. A theological debate amongst the missionary explorers on whether to attempt to win over the creatures was waged.
The end consensus of them was that the turtles and mushrooms did not have souls, but did have the ability to choose or reject Christ as a human did. It was essentially a compromise.

The missionaries witnessed to the turtles and mushrooms and overwhelmingly converted them all into Christianity. Specifically, the sort of Christianity that was a stronghold in the American Colonies before the Revolution. Their denomination is unclear, but it is generally believed to be a combination of Puritans, Angelicans, Anabaptists, Baptists, and non-denominational/freelance believers. Elements of all of these still linger.

Instead of purging them or burning them at the stake (witchcraft), they took their risks and witnessed the Christian faith to them. This succeeded immensely. The entire nation was Christianized.

Prior to the religious upheaval, the turtles' lifestyle could be compared to Social Darwinism and lazziez-faire capitalism: every reptile for themselves and survival of the fittest. The mushrooms, meanwhile, could be considered collectivist at the least, a hivemind at the most. Both the turtles and the mushrooms were on neutral terms with each other, neither friends nor eneimies.


The missionaries taught the indigneous turtles and mushrooms English, and said creatures opened up to them and became Christians by the thousands and tens of thousands. Christianity wasn't just the dominant religion, it was THE religion.

Eventually, the missionaries settled down in TurtleShroom with the turtles and mushrooms. Their previous successes at converting the turtles and mushrooms to their belief system enabled a seamless transition, because a part of their faith explicitly declared that humans had Dominion over all other creatures. The humans never thought to oppress or enslave the mushrooms and turtles; they didn't need it because they had left their original lands to start a new life and be self-made men.


In the very early 1790s, the religious elders of the humans that settled into TurtleShroom decided that there needed to be a solid government, like any human nation would have, and they began writing up a Constitution for the turtles and mushrooms. The turtles and mushrooms weren't fond of the exclusion- having previously been treated as equals -and contested this.

Arguments began to form and anxiety stopped the convention. Most of this so-called "war" was fought on the pulpits and alters of the churches of the nation. It seemed that there would either be a fragmented state or a civil war amongst these fairly ungoverned people.

Let's let a TurtleShroomer historian take it from here.
The Good Cardinal Jason Icfella, of TurtleShroom wrote:So, they drafted a Constitution. The humans wanted democracy and the turtles a rigid order. The mushrooms wanted a strong government, and all three wanted Christianity to guid them.
They fought for seven years, with what government they would institute. TurtleShroom had being a loose conglomerate of judges, sort of like the Jewish Sanhedrin system or that of the present day earth's Somalia. We call this period Adhocratic Anarchy. An adhocracy is the exact opposite of a bureaucracy, in that the elite in power have no orders or positions, and they work together across the political aisles to mush up some sort of order. It's like one step above anarchy, with a loose order on the verge of falling.

TurtleShroom may have been an anarchy forever if it wasn't for our nations most famous human: Jones Found the Glorious! What can I say about Jones to portray his epic win? He was a nomadic Biblical scholar from a distant land, with a hairdo much like mine but blond- an amazing anachronism for the beginning of the 1800s -and he had this sweet beard that was HUGE, like Karl Marx. The beard was also blond. He was eight feet three inches high and in a period suit. Now, Jones was learned in Scripture and quickly crushed the judgemental glances given by our forefathers by his faith. He suggested taking ideas from the Bible. God sang praise of a powerful and just King, but Americaland, by this time, had swept the planets of all star systems with their democratic government.

A compromise was built on the power of veto. Much like God has the final say, so too the heads of state. A multi-branch system with very thin seperation of power was instated. Relying heavily on religion, this new government gave immense power to the heads of state- the Kings, or as we call them now, Chancellors -powers mostly untouched today.

The original Constitution also banned alcohol and gave free practice of religion, and established Christianity as the foundation of government and calling an invocation of the Lord in the Preamble.

Prohibition was immediantly agreed by all parties. Slowly, the democractic process of our secular courts and Congress, elected by the people, coupled with the executive branch, appointed, and throwing divorce and alcohol into their own courts appointed, a complex structure was made. This is how we work today. Skillets were suggested by Jones as declared currency to protect the mushrooms.



After a lot of bickering, the turtles and mushrooms, with the humans, agreed to cast lots. The winner would rule. Sentients even, humans odd. The number fell on a six, and so be it, turtles and mushrooms were declared soverign by cleromancy. So devout were the nations' forefathers that they refused to question the dice. For the next hundred twenty years, the humans didn't have a Chancellor like the turtles and mushrooms did.



(Fun fact: the original list item that I chose was "LIKE-MINDED ISOLATIONISTS".)

Postby TurtleShroom » Thu Aug 19, 2010 7:06 pm

ALLIANCES, EMBASSIES, PACTS:


Here's why:
They would unquestionably dismiss allegations of evidence of Japanese Dystopia's war crimes as propaganda and lies, and it would be very insulting to TurtleShroomian governmental workers and leaders that you'd try and "smear" GEIJD like that. You see, GEIJD has tricked TurtleShroom with a web of lies and a media blackout. TurtleShroom is too goody-goody and scared to go back into war (see TurtleShroom's "Great Awakening"), and therefore, only sees GEIJD in its capacity as a government when engaging in diplomatic and strategic talk. This, of course, allows the GEIJD to "clean" its image and tell TurtleShroom exactly what it wants to hear, how it wants to hear it, and present it as fact with a straight face.

It wouldn't work.

-----------------

This is a Telegram I sent to someone asking me about the Steele Pact; it should clear everything up:

I bet you're wondering why TurtleShroom is in the Steele Pact. Good question! The answer is that TurtleShroom has been tricked into believing GEIJD is a good nation that is tormented by others for its nuclear might.

They have completely performed a media blackout of their crimes and tell the TurtleShroomers an immense web of lies to keep them in support. They know that TurtleShroom is a pure, goody-goody nation, and the naivete of both the government AND the people ensure that the nation believes the nation.

TurtleShroom doesn't even know GEIJD has "evil" in its name!

TurtleShroom is not aware of the heinous war crimes committed by Imperial Japanese Dystopia. Every effort was made to keep TS in the black, lest the appalled nation revoke the alliance. TurtleShroom's government, like its citizenry, are extremely gullible.

Innocence by association! TurtleShroom's comparatively free and moderate stance could be used by the Steele Pact to say "Hey! We're not evil, look at TurtleShroom! If that goody-goody two shoes nation was welcomed in, we mustn'y be evil!!".

Besides, a goody-goody's interaction with a "League of Super Villains" makes for GREAT LITERATIRE!!

  • Liberal TurtleShroom (puppet/exclave)
  • Queendom of Haiz (permament, full/MPP alliance)
  • Hippostania(alliance pact expired November 2011)
  • Greater Imperial Japanese Dystopia (Permanent trade pact, LINK,SUPERSEDED by Steele Pact)
  • Blackhelm Confederacy (not a real ally, but unquestionably trusted with permission to drill for extensive oil)
  • The Western Reaches (trade pact with a PRIVATE company, link)
  • City of Aurora (unofficial)
  • East Keswick (client state)
  • Germanoslavia
  • New Amerik (unofficial)
  • Zottistan (at war, sided with Zottistanian govenment)
  • Agrarian Utopia (officia, mutual trade pactl)
  • Comrade Commissar (de facto, large-scale military cooperation/intelligence)

The State of Monavia wrote:1. TurtleShroom: The world's conscience. They might make mistakes like the rest of us, but they always put their money where their mouths are, have a good sense of humor, officially stay out of the business of their neighbors, promote the freedom of the free market, grow foreign economies through trade, fight slavery, take stands against moral depravity, protect religious institutions from secular persecution, and endure with patience and dignity the horrors heaped upon them by everybody else.

After managing to smash the local military (if it could be called that, some of the military commanders consider it an oversized militia), the Saurisian forces manage to take the capital of Jonesborough with a little bit of a headache from the locals.

The LOP Founder is a regional administration puppet for the purpose of controlling vassal states and representing the LOP for meaningless... stuff.
Whatever.

In-character, LOP Founder is not a physical country, but a legal person and autonomous entity not bound by any nation's laws, de jure. Sort of like the Vatican, I guess. The "population" is the number of requests processed.

Anyway, basically, TurtleShroom owns the Land of Power, so therefore, TurtleShroom rules its regional government's representative.
I am the Land of Power. The Land of Power is me.
