The Demented platypus of THE KANGAROO is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by El Presidente Duck with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.242 billion Duckeeducks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of DUCK. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient a duck economy, worth an astonishing 13,877 trillion Ducks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 444,187 Ducks, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through THE KANGAROO, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Duckeeducks any less frightened. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. THE KANGAROO's national animal is the Duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Cult of the depraved duck.

THE KANGAROO is ranked 627th in the world and 1st in Celtic warrior for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 26,903.18 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
