The Duck Hockey Republic of BuckyHermit is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Teemu Selanne with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.475 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.

Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. 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 1,261st in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 25 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
