The Duck Hockey Republic of BuckyHermit is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Teemu Selanne with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.087 billion BuckyHermitians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Commerce, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anaheim. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales industries.

Believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, and rap artists are regularly jailed for promoting extremist groups. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. BuckyHermit's national animal is the Wild Wing, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Church of Teemu Selanne, and its currency is the puck.

BuckyHermit is ranked 1st in California and 200th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 484 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
