The duck republic

Population1.431 billion

LeaderDuck Man


The Democracy of The duck republic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Duck Man with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.431 billion duck republicians 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 Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quackoplis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.0%.

The frighteningly efficient duck republician economy, worth 194 trillion Quacks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,243 Quacks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 461,113 per year while the poor average 29,749, a ratio of 15.5 to 1.

The roar of the Niagara 3000 mega-loo can be heard several blocks away, the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, adultery has been made a capital offence, and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The duck republic's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

The duck republic is ranked 25,970th in the world and 228th in Europeia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,836.53 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
