You can use text on a path to do this.

Start with your globe in a 3D group. Create your text, then in the Layout Controls change the layout method to Path, this will enable the path options. Change the shape to Circle. Go to the format tab and in the advanced formatting open the rotation parameter. Rotate the text -90°. Finally rotate the text layer +90°. You now have text on a circle path that you can orbit around things. Position the layer where you need. You can change the size of the orbit to "fit" your globe by increasing the radius in the Text:Path Options. To animate the text on the path you can animate the path offset in the path options.
