Imperial Duck

Population469 million

The Most Serene Republic of Imperial Duck is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 469 million Imperials 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meeseopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth 61.0 trillion gold bars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 130,147 gold bars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 478,400 per year while the poor average 25,036, a ratio of 19.1 to 1.

Grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Imperial Duck's national animal is the Meese, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Imperial Duck is ranked 51,612th in the world and 2,224th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.05 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
