The Empire of Turtle Top Mountain is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Archduke Harold James with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.916 billion Turtle Top Mountainians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altama Ridge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Turtle Top Mountainian economy, worth a remarkable 1,299 trillion Shells a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 145,732 Shells, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, art criticism in Turtle Top Mountain is scathingly destructive, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Turtle Top Mountain's national animal is the Mountain Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Grand Turtle Spiritism.

Turtle Top Mountain is ranked 43,772nd in the world and 10th in Crassia for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
