The Exalted Supremacy of TurtleButtocks is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dolan with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, anti-smoking policies, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.646 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 39.3%.

The all-consuming Dolanist economy, worth 202 trillion Dolan Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led 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 123,313 Dolan Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 383,706 per year while the poor average 30,470, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

Foreign nationals are widely distrusted, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, the country is preparing for war, and a light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man. 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 1,218th in the world and 826th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 130 Valid Endorsements.
