The Snarky Solar Observer of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Salvor Hardin with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 33.327 billion Lovecraftians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Four Ecks. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 4,500 trillion Zevons 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 135,034 Zevons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. 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 9,552nd in the world and 213th in the West Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 12,253.08 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
