The House of Ducksworth

Population3.01 billion

LeaderHigh Duke Miles Dagonet Ducksworth


The Grand Duchy of The House of Ducksworth is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by High Duke Miles Dagonet Ducksworth with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed population of 3.01 billion Ducksworthers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duckholme. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ducksworthian economy, worth 395 trillion Duckles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,408 Duckles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', High Duke Miles Dagonet Ducksworth's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, ironic death by tasering is on the rise amongst door-to-door taser salesmen, and soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The House of Ducksworth's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The House of Ducksworth is ranked 6,398th in the world and 326th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 457.33 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
