The Grand Bananan Republic of Orcatortugs is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Wawa with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.045 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 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 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Orcatortugsian economy, worth 395 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 97,732 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and euthanasia is legal. 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.
