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 notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.457 billion TurtleShroomers are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Administration, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jonesboro. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient TurtleShroomian economy, worth a remarkable 6,420 trillion Scrips a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 390,115 Scrips, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,326,092 per year while the poor average 29,889, a ratio of 77.8 to 1.

Angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, jury duty means front row seats to a spectacular show, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, and sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TURTLESHROOM II's national animal is the Nangnang, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

TURTLESHROOM II is ranked 4,212th in the world and 3rd in Valkia for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 45,487.43 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
