Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Ducky II is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alistair Fountain PM with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 13.742 billion Ducky IIians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quacksville. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ducky IIian economy, worth a remarkable 1,817 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 132,262 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, and chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Quacksville's playgrounds. 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 154,874th in the world and 269th in Grand Central for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -62.37 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
