The USDA Certified Organic of New Ducklands is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.323 billion New Duckians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingston. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient New Duckian economy, worth a remarkable 1,058 trillion British Sterling Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,216 British Sterling Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, the paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Ducklands's national animal is the Mallard Duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
