The Grand Duchy of Paperino is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Carl Barks with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.423 billion Mighty Ducks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duckburg. The average income tax rate is 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Donaldvillois economy, worth 163 trillion topolino dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,664 topolino dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Getting an autograph has become harder than ever, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, and Duckburg is a police state during international summits. Crime is totally unknown. Paperino's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Disney.

Paperino is ranked 138,495th in the world and 5th in Lewisham for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.9 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
