The Grand Duchy of The House of Ducksworth is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Duke Miles Dagonet Ducksworth with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 2.127 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 government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duckholme. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ducksworthian economy, worth 271 trillion Duckles a year, is fairly diversified and 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 127,547 Duckles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
A new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones. 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.
