"Rolisika" is a combination of the Japanese words for America and Russia. Their flag is a weird combination of the American and Soviet flag and it's why all the wide shots of "New Kirk City" are B-roll of Miami, but on the street level it has a more Eastern European look.
Basically they're the ultimate international superpower. Or something. They were supposed to be in Mothra vs. Godzilla
with the Rolisikan Navy using the Frontier Missiles on Godzilla in the beach attack scene, but it was changed to American in the last draft.

Snapping turtles have the same connotations that bulldogs would have in Japan. Round and stubborn. Hence the odd nickname, but both are perfectly appropriate.
