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 remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.126 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, moralistic government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Spirituality, and Education also on the agenda, 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 16.1%.

The frighteningly efficient TurtleShroomian economy, worth a remarkable 4,096 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 337,868 Scrips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,126,414 per year while the poor average 75,455, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, replacement organs are grown in vats, all artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Scrip mansions. 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 48,939th in the world and 7th in Valkia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 60.11 on the Rand Index.
