The Exalted Supremacy of TurtleButtocks is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dolan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.304 billion Minion of Dolans 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dolan's Dominion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.5%.

The all-consuming Dolanist economy, worth 152 trillion Dolan Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 117,011 Dolan Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 380,617 per year while the poor average 27,102, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

Nations across the world are quick to praise Dolan's good looks and intellectual prowess, vacationing Minion of Dolans expect to be treated as royalty, citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, and relationship guidance consists of "lie back and think of TurtleButtocks". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TurtleButtocks's national animal is the Dolanimal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dolanism.

TurtleButtocks is ranked 108,653rd in the world and 5,793rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 39.37 on the Hayek Index.
