Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Duck Hockey Republic of BuckyHermit is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Teemu Selanne with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.808 billion BuckyHermitians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anaheim. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient BuckyHermitian economy, worth a remarkable 2,392 trillion pucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 271,628 pucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Trespassers often find themselves impaled by crossbow bolts, citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, it is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Anaheim. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. BuckyHermit's national animal is the Wild Wing, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of Teemu Selanne.

BuckyHermit is ranked 4th in California and 22,562nd in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
