The Grand Duchy of Paperino is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Carl Barks with a fair hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.137 billion Mighty Ducks 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duckburg. The average income tax rate is 52.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Donaldvillois economy, worth 517 trillion topolino dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 125,062 topolino dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

All government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, Donaldvillois companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime is totally unknown. Paperino's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Disney.

Paperino is ranked 19,343rd in the world and 2nd in Lewisham for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 264.51 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
