The Aquatic Weasels of The Otter Archipelago is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Otterian Senate with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.32 billion Otterians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Otterton. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Otterian economy, worth a remarkable 2,953 trillion Abalones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 192,788 Abalones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a bright dawn ahead for The Otter Archipelago, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime is totally unknown. The Otter Archipelago's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Otter Archipelago is ranked 8,579th in the world and 2nd in GTA Forums for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 11,632.33 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
