The Snarky Solar Observer of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Salvor Hardin with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 37.659 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 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 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 6,304 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 167,422 Zevons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out you can teach cats new tricks, Four Ecks has become the number one destination for urban exploration in the West Pacific, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills. 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 1,573rd in the world and 16th in the West Pacific for Largest Populations, with 37.7 billion capita.
