The Lucky Holy Republic of Orca and Narwhal is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Santa Claus with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 10.637 billion Orca and Narwhalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrassil. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Orca and Narwhalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,312 trillion Gold Bars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 123,361 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, the latest guided missile cruiser "Ship-1642" has received precisely zero column inches in the press, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, and factories grind to a halt every time there is an election. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orca and Narwhal's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Orca and Narwhal is ranked 32,269th in the world and 9th in The Great North for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.85 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
