The Exalted Supremacy of TurtleButtocks is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dolan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.192 billion Minion of Dolans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dolan's Dominion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.6%.

The all-consuming Dolanist economy, worth 279 trillion Dolan Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 127,565 Dolan Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 405,100 per year while the poor average 30,604, a ratio of 13.2 to 1.

Hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence, ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Dolanist beaches, possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, and labour strikes are routinely squashed by police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TurtleButtocks's national animal is the Dolanimal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dolanism.

TurtleButtocks is ranked 144,408th in the world and 7,467th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 7.14 Prayers Per Hour.
