The Snarky Solar Observer of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Salvor Hardin with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 37.613 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, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, 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 6,288 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 167,195 Zevons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Lovecraftians, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Salvor Hardin is a silly poophead. 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 309,642nd in the world and 5,009th in the West Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 2,507.94 Standard Monetary Units.
