The Empire of Tuptoogza is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.787 billion Tuptoogzans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Tuptoogzan economy, worth 383 trillion Pesos a year, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 101,201 Pesos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 335,168 per year while the poor average 22,824, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

There's stiff competition in the medical marketplace, no one can find a leaky faucet in Tuptoogza anymore, the nationalized auto industry is adept at making durable little cars nobody wants to drive, and catcalling has been replaced by slut-shaming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tuptoogza's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tuptoogza is ranked 110,719th in the world and 3,158th in Balder for Most Primitive, scoring -39.68 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
