The Quacking Monarchy of Duckstan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Francis with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.457 billion Duckstanis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duckton. The average income tax rate is 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Duckstani economy, worth 676 trillion Duckstani Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,715 Duckstani Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
The only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag, it's not mass murder when the government does it, claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, and jaywalking is punishable by public flogging. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duckstan's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
