The Tantalising Taniwha of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Le Chromosphere with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.948 billion Lovecraftians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare 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 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 4,046 trillion Zevons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 126,669 Zevons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, the country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, and crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 133,974th in the world and 3,750th in the West Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
