The Grand Bananan Republic of Orcatortugs is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Wawa with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.721 billion Kturtlians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wawatown. The average income tax rate is 78.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Orcatortugan economy, worth a remarkable 1,035 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 common. Average income is an impressive 134,166 Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Disadvantaged youths often commit felonies to enhance their educational prospects, polite commuters on the Wawatown Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 246,741st in the world and 6,861st in the West Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
