The Great Bountiful Empire of TURTLESHROOM II is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Interregnum with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, strictly enforced bedtime, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.992 billion TurtleShroomers are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Spirituality, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jonesboro. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient TurtleShroomian economy, worth a remarkable 3,037 trillion Scrips a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 303,986 Scrips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,035,825 per year while the poor average 65,704, a ratio of 15.8 to 1.

The nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and pregnant women make easy targets. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Southern Baptist Christianity.

TURTLESHROOM II is ranked 2,776th in the world and 1st in Valkia for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 83.28 Workforce Participation Rate.
