The Empire of Tuptoogza is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.367 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, Administration, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tuptoogzan economy, worth 464 trillion Pesos a year, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 106,265 Pesos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 383,587 per year while the poor average 21,029, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Strange men lingering in offices distributing television sets is a basis for a system of government, foreign heads of state have taken out restraining orders against Tuptoogzan ambassadors, cities are engulfed by smog, and the skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great Tuptoogzan Desert. 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 761st in the world and 12th in Balder for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1,086.14 Bank.
