The Snarky Solar Observer of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Salvor Hardin with an even hand, and notable for its conspicuous electricity pylons, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, humorless population of 37.594 billion Lovecraftians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Four Ecks. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 6,267 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 and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 166,702 Zevons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Lovecraftians. Crime 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 11,346th in the world and 168th in the West Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 5 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
