The Snarky Solar Observer of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Le Chromosphere with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 32.956 billion Lovecraftians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Four Ecks. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 4,337 trillion Zevons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,628 Zevons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, Le Chromosphere's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, and the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bhang Bhang Duc's national animal is the Slark, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Drinking Brains SA.

Bhang Bhang Duc is ranked 1,733rd in the world and 34th in the West Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,551.13 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
