The Republic of Duk1and is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 698 million Duks are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Webster. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The powerhouse Duk1andian economy, worth 77.8 trillion Dukets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 111,459 Dukets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 339,902 per year while the poor average 28,349, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names, and the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast. Crime is almost non-existent. Duk1and's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Duk1and is ranked 9,035th in the world and 1st in New Normandy for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 8,341.84 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
