The Duck Hockey Republic of BuckyHermit is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Teemu Selanne with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.303 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."

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.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, the government pours millions of pucks into rehabilitation programs annually, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries. 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 29th in California and 120,958th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring -147 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
