A toy turtle dressed as a pirate lies on top of a ballot box during a party convention of the Pirates in Neumuenster, northern Germany, Saturday, April 28, 2012. Pirates are capturing Germany's political system: The party started as a marginal club of computer nerds and hackers, but its appeal as an anti-establishment movement has lured many young voters to the ballot boxes, gaining it parliamentary seats in two consecutive state elections.
