The Grand Duchy of 66 Ducks is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Grand Duchess Evita with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, devout population of 20.374 billion Ducks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Muchos Pavos. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient 66 Ducksian economy, worth a remarkable 2,158 trillion quackers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,948 quackers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed, school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 66 Ducks's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lifepool.

66 Ducks is ranked 24,468th in the world and 26th in Wysteria for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.1 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
