Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Ducky II is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alistair Fountain PM with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.331 billion Ducky IIians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quacksville. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ducky IIian economy, worth a remarkable 2,001 trillion Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 139,661 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ducky II's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ducky II is ranked 1,047th in the world and 2nd in Grand Central for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 9,880.71 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
