The Duck Army Squadron 1

Population2.778 billion

LeaderWarden Ducky


The Defender of The Duck Army Squadron 1 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Warden Ducky with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, compulsory gun ownership, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.778 billion Ducks are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duckland. The average income tax rate is 24.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Duck economy, worth 98.5 trillion Duckcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,472 Duckcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The tightness of border controls in The Duck Army Squadron 1 leave a little to be desired, foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights, armed security details escort librarians to their homes, and political clichés like "band-aid solutions" and "adrenaline shots to the economy" are headed for the dumpster. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Duck Army Squadron 1's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Duckism.

The Duck Army Squadron 1 is ranked 41,031st in the world and 271st in Artificial Solar System for Best Weather, with 129 meters of sunlight.
