Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy of The House of Ducksworth is a massive, safe nation, ruled by High Duke Miles Dagonet Ducksworth with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, digital currency, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed population of 1.735 billion Ducksworthers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 64.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ducksworthian economy, worth 222 trillion Duckles a year, is broadly 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 128,418 Duckles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. 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 148,055th in the world and 7,407th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.11 Weapons Per Person.
