The Kingdom of Ducky II is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Alistair Fountain PM with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 16.793 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, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quacksville. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ducky IIian economy, worth a remarkable 2,445 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. Average income is an impressive 145,611 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, the government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions, and foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights. 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 167,389th in the world and 11th in Grand Central for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -28.5 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
