The Republic of Duk1and is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 669 million Duks 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Webster. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.

The powerhouse Duk1andian economy, worth 72.4 trillion Dukets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 108,174 Dukets, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", and depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duk1and's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Duk1and is ranked 30,078th in the world and 1st in New Normandy for Smartest Citizens, with 46.76 Quips Per Hour.
