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 museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 34.114 billion Lovecraftians 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment 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 Four Ecks. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 4,820 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 141,304 Zevons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. 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 1,726th in the world and 30th in the West Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,586.19 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
