The Grandmaster of Oogway is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 574 million Kung Fu Masters 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valley of Peace. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Oogwayian economy, worth 50.8 trillion Wu Zhus a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 88,519 Wu Zhus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

For just a few extra Wu Zhus Kung Fu Masters can get new driving records with their new cars, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, and Valley of Peace has become the number one destination for urban exploration in Valley of Peace. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oogway's national animal is the Galapagos turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Oogway is ranked 136,611th in the world and 117th in Valley of Peace for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.13 percentage of bribes refused.
