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 pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 2.463 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duckholme. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ducksworthian economy, worth 313 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 127,415 Duckles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated, death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, and photographers have to apply for a license to photograph High Duke Miles Dagonet Ducksworth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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.
