The Duck Hockey Republic of BuckyHermit is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Teemu Selanne with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.105 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.

Rap artists are regularly jailed for promoting extremist groups, police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate, the government props up questionable pizza establishments in the name of health, and the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights. 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 2nd in California and 343rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 16 on the Hayek Index.
