The Defender Planet of Ducky is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Warden Ducky with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.254 billion Ducks are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duckland. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Duck economy, worth 261 trillion Duckcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 80,313 Duckcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, Warden Ducky's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Duck Dung" has been declared a national treasure, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ducky's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Duckism.

Ducky is ranked 272,696th in the world and 276th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 27.85 Whatever.
