The Hastur La Vista of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by August Derleth with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 29.713 billion Lovecraftians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunwich. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 3,287 trillion Necronomicons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,648 Necronomicons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, and the news is showing footage of August Derleth bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bhang Bhang Duc's national animal is the Dhole Worm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Summoning Great Old Ones.

Bhang Bhang Duc is ranked 1,190th in the world and 18th in the West Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 127 Valid Endorsements.
