Duckionary, officially known as the Parliamentary Monarchy of Duckionary, is a dynamic micronation established on 24 August 2018 by its visionary founder Arthur de Tourneau. Home to about 25 citizens, Duckionary has a liberal constitution and a parliamentary form of government headed by a monarch. The charming capital city of Panagua is the heart of the nation, and German, English and Esperanto are the official languages spoken by the diverse population.
Duckionary, which celebrates its national holiday on 24 August, the day of its founding, has a rich culture inspired by a variety of influences including history, geography, religion and politics. Guided by core values such as freedom, equality, rule of law, tolerance, monarchy and solidarity, Duckionary possesses a unique identity and promotes a harmonious society.
Duckionary's distinctive character is embodied in its national emblems, which include a tri-color flag and a fascinating coat of arms with symbolic elements such as a cockatoo, kiwi, ginkgo leaf, crown, and scales of justice. The country also has its own currency, the Duckaten, which facilitates internal economic transactions.
To connect with potential citizens and foster partnerships, Duckionary uses its online presence through various platforms. It actively participates in the global micronational community, establishes diplomatic relations with like-minded nations, and is a respected member of international organizations such as the Union Against Micronational War and the Micronational Postal Association. Delegations from Duckionary have participated in the Micro Euro Summit 2022, in the Micro Euro Summit 2023 in the MicroCon EU 2023 as well as a variety of other pyhsic diplomatic meetings.
Duckionary's compelling journey as a micronation continues as it takes pride in its unique heritage and works toward a prosperous future fueled by shared ideals and collaborative efforts.
In 2023 (from 24-26 August), Duckionary will celebrate its fifth anniversary with a three-day celebration. On the first day there will be a soft opening at Duckionary, on the second day a conference and coronation of Arthur I at an Austrian castle and a dinner at a castle tavern on the Inn River. Finally, on the last day there will be a cultural trip to the Czech Republic.
Government and Politics
Duckionary, an emerging country with a unique political landscape, has become a fascinating political and governance case in recent years. With a clear vision of equality, monarchy as well as democracy, Duckionary has created a government based on the principle of collective decision-making.
The political landscape is characterized by a diversity of offices representing a wide range of ideologies. The first man in the state is the Archduke, and all decisions and laws must be approved by him. In peronal union, the Archduke is also Prime Minister, both positions are for life. To have also some democracy, there is the office of the Minister of Interior, democratically elected by the people. These three offices are supported by a variety of ministers, high councils, crown councils, secret councils and advisors. Through this system, the citizens of Duckionary have a strong voice in political decisions.
Duckionary's politics are also characterized by the active involvement of the people in politics through polls and referendums, as well as citizen question time.
The government meets physically several times a year in Austria or Germany for meetings where all important issues are dealt with.
Duckionary's constitution is the country's most important legal document and governs the basic structure of the state, its relations with other nations and constituent states, and the rights and duties of its citizens. It represents the supreme norm to which all state power is bound and which limits its actions. Constituent power emanates from the archduke and takes precedence over all other statutory provisions.
The actions of the state organs are bound by the provisions of the constitution and their observance is monitored by a special constitutional court. This can not only declare laws to be unconstitutional, but also, if necessary, declare constitutional amendments to be ineffective constitutional law. However, it is either not possible at all or only to a limited extent for review by these courts, since the constitution itself represents the measure for assessing the legality of state action. The constitution can only be changed under difficult conditions and therefore requires a separate constitutional legislature to change it.

Geography / Territories
Duckionary consists of eight small areas in Europe, listed below.
Panagua is an outlying territory, Duchy, and the capital of the Parliamentary Monarchy of Duckionary. Originally arising from a territorial dispute between Croatia and Serbia, this independent territory remained unclaimed by any nation, entity, or private institution, making it a terra nullius (no man's land on an international level) since the Croatian War of Independence in the 1990s.
On 13 July 2021, Panagua was declared a territorial dependency by Duckionary and recognized as its rightful property under international law.
Panagua is being developed into a modern and sustainable city, with approximately 90% of the land area designated for construction, while the remaining 10% and some parts of the water area will serve as energy sources and recreational spaces for its citizens. The plan envisions accommodating up to 800 people in Panagua by 2035.
Situated along the Danube, Panagua is an ideal location for freight transportation, with plans for a terminal to facilitate such operations. An industrial railway is also scheduled to serve the area, enabling both goods and passenger traffic.
The central location of Panagua allows for convenient access to Osijek, the fourth-largest city in Croatia, which is only a 50-minute drive away (using hydrogen fuel). Additionally, the Serbian town of Sombor, with a population of 60,000, is merely a 30-minute journey.
Since December 2022, the Duckionary government has obtained official permission from Croatian authorities to access the territory of Panagua. This development paves the way for further exploration, development, and administration of the region by Duckionary.
In March 2023, the Archduke spoke with the minister of justice of Liberland about a possible cooperation.
