The Queen's State of Piney Duck is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 26.197 billion Piney Duckians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.4%.

The thriving Piney Duckian economy, worth 897 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 34,245 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 149,740 per year while the poor average 4,940, a ratio of 30.3 to 1.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the government is slowly introducing social welfare programs, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and an underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Piney Duck's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Piney Duck is ranked 36,649th in the world and 6th in The Philippines for Most Stationary, with 401.8169650592 Days.
