The Grand Bananan Republic of Orcatortugs is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Wawa with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.598 billion Kturtlians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wawatown. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Orcatortugsian economy, worth 357 trillion Stars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,401 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students do more community service than homework, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, every workday begins with group therapy, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orcatortugs's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Tortugan.

Orcatortugs is ranked 73,030th in the world and 2,159th in the West Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,705.85 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
