Historically, the islands have prospered via its successful agriculture sector, spearheaded by Jungle Bird Seed (which controls more than 80 per cent of the world bird seed market) and Jed's Horse Feed (which was chief supplier to the US war effort in Afghanistan). In the technology sector, companies like Satanco (genetic modification) are increasingly dominant.

The Tortoise Islands has one of the most successful and prosperous banking sectors in the world today. The largest bank, Tortoise Bank, was established in 1889 at the end of the Great Gold Rush and over the years has grown to become the international financial colossus it is known as today. Tortoise Bank stores the Islands' gold reserves under contract with the government.

The World Chaos Disorganization spearheads scientific research on the islands. The WCD has built a huge complex of research laboratories in the south of Great Tortoise Island since the organization was expelled from the USA in the late 1980s. A joint biological facility is also operated in association with the Great North Wallidistan Zoo at the top end of the island where extensive dinosaur DNA research is carried out.

The Mental Institute for Strategic Studies is the Islands' premier research institute. The MIFSS think tank provides strategic policy and research advice to governments and corporations around the globe.
