|Leader||High Duke Miles Dagonet Ducksworth|
The Grand Duchy of The House of Ducksworth is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Duke Miles Dagonet Ducksworth with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.745 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 Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duckholme. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ducksworthian economy, worth 498 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 133,243 Duckles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, and rumour has it High Duke Miles Dagonet Ducksworth needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten. 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.
