The Republic of Tughampton is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Kublai with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.196 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 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tughamptonian economy, worth 149 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,276 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-riot police are dispatched whenever two elderly ladies gather to complain that prices have increased, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and war vets look after war animals. 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 187,297th in the world and 6,188th in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -4.73 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
