The Confederacy of Tortugashima is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, devout population of 743 million Tortugans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York City. The average income tax rate is 32.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Turtleshelled economy, worth 75.2 trillion pizze al taglio shurinkens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 101,269 pizze al taglio shurinkens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tortugashima's national animal is the ninja turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Tortugashima is ranked 6,059th in the world and 6th in Confederacy of Layem for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,257.74 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
