The Grand Duchy of 66 Ducks is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Duchess Evita with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 20.88 billion Ducks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Muchos Pavos. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient 66 Ducksian economy, worth a remarkable 2,177 trillion quackers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,299 quackers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, and meetings are often scheduled for "about four-ish" following complete conversion to sundials. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 66 Ducks's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lifepool.

66 Ducks is ranked 224,308th in the world and 75th in Wysteria for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -21.48 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
