The Grand Bananan Republic of Orcatortugs is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Wawa with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.44 billion Kturtlians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wawatown. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Orcatortugan economy, worth 587 trillion Stars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,080 Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. 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.
