The Shekel for an Ex-Leper Guv of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Le Chromosphere with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, anti-smoking policies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 23.658 billion Bhangians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Four Ecks. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth 182 trillion pingus a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 7,724 pingus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, Bhang Bhang Duc's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and extreme political groups are outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bhang Bhang Duc's national animal is the sofa sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Drinking Brains S A.

Bhang Bhang Duc is ranked 5,757th in the West Pacific and 118,763rd in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 7 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
