The Republic of Tughampton is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kublai with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.076 billion Tughamptonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ronaldoville. The average income tax rate is 37.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tughamptonian economy, worth 134 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,543 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Millions of guilders have been thrown into a project to find the cure for Mad Penguin Disease, explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", and the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tughampton's national animal is the penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Tughampton is ranked 226,599th in the world and 7,432nd in the South Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -247.39 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
