The Great Bountiful Empire of TURTLESHROOM II is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tsars Outtacountry and Olvia and Wip with an even hand, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.945 billion TurtleShroomers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Spirituality, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jonesboro. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.5%.

The frighteningly efficient TurtleShroomian economy, worth a remarkable 4,555 trillion Scrips a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 351,935 Scrips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,288,931 per year while the poor average 68,091, a ratio of 18.9 to 1.

Fruit vendors are encouraging a life of crime in their advertising, white privilege is a real thing, the government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public, and the only science is political science. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TURTLESHROOM II's national animal is the Nangnang, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

TURTLESHROOM II is ranked 6,487th in the world and 3rd in Valkia for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 27,905.95 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
