The Free Land of Rubberduckia is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.089 billion Rubberduckians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rubberduckian economy, worth 183 trillion Ducklings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 87,928 Ducklings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime is totally unknown. Rubberduckia's national animal is the Rubber duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rubberduckia is ranked 214,698th in the world and 5,689th in the West Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -128.55 on the Hayek Index.
