The Aquatic Weasels of The Otter Archipelago is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Otterian Senate with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.001 billion Otterians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Otterian economy, worth a remarkable 3,069 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 191,858 Abalones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm, the official Otterian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, the Motherland's muscle-bound athletes won 786 medals at the last United GTA Forums Games, and gambling is outlawed. 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 228,851st in the world and 4th in GTA Forums for Most Primitive, scoring -740.58 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
