Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Duck Hockey Republic of BuckyHermit is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Teemu Selanne with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, unlimited-speed roads, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.657 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 2,376 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 274,534 pucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

A government program is underway to revitalize BuckyHermit's beaches, daily newspapers are permitted to run only pro-government stories, the government snoops on private internet connections, and the government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners. 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 2nd in California and 1,020th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 12 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
