Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Duck Hockey Republic of BuckyHermit is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Teemu Selanne with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.863 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, moralistic, 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 Social Policy are ignored. 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 2,113 trillion pucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 268,833 pucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, citizens must pay to enjoy BuckyHermit's pristine beaches, trespassers often find themselves impaled by crossbow bolts, and it is illegal to own a mobile phone. 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 2,221st in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 8 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
