Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Ducky II is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Alistair Fountain PM with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 13.575 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quacksville. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ducky IIian economy, worth a remarkable 1,705 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 125,650 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. 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 2,955th in the world and 5th in Grand Central for Largest Governments, scoring 44.33 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
