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 renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.188 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 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ducky IIian economy, worth a remarkable 2,160 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 142,247 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, and tourists visit Ducky II to mass-moon Ducky IIian politicians. 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 91,139th in the world and 24th in Grand Central for Largest Black Market, with 168 billion Standard Monetary Units.
