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 renowned for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.172 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 aren't funded at all. 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 2,224 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 272,262 pucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, and troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean. 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 20th in California and 78,480th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 57 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
