The Junglist Massive of Orang-utang is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 1.408 billion Orang-utangs enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HomeTree. The average income tax rate is 32.9%.

The sizeable but inefficient Orang-utang economy, worth 56.2 trillion Fruits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Basket Weaving, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 39,949 Fruits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

International tensions are high as Orang-utang threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, Orang-utang has been greatly criticised for its isolationist policies, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orang-utang's national animal is the Termite, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Orang-utang is ranked 172,963rd in the world and 266th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.21 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
