The Grand Bananan Republic of Orcatortugs is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Wawa with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.167 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wawatown. The average income tax rate is 81.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Orcatortugan economy, worth 555 trillion Stars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 107,567 Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Rich people sell their mansions to pay for endless rows of mobile homes, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. 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.

Orcatortugs is ranked 236,257th in the world and 5,774th in the West Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 9.67 Insults Per Minute.
