Ducks Looking For Grapes

Population550 million

CapitalLemonade City


The Free Land of Ducks Looking For Grapes is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, ban on automobiles, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 550 million ducks have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lemonade City. The average income tax rate is 35.4%.

The thriving lemonade stand economy, worth 43.8 trillion grapes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,622 grapes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, many feel that the government's ban on cars to combat reckless driving was "a tad excessive", and an extra-long museum is being built to house the old border wall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ducks Looking For Grapes's national animal is the duck.

Ducks Looking For Grapes is ranked 37,689th in the world and 2nd in The Lemonade Stand for Highest Poor Incomes, with 40,669.35 Standard Monetary Units.
