The Snark Lord of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Le Chromosphere with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 27.816 billion Bhangians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Social Policy 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 91.9%.

The all-consuming Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 2,894 trillion pingus a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 104,063 pingus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the nation forgives those who are big enough to admit they made a mistake, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', and the Bhang Bhang Duc Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. 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 S A.

Bhang Bhang Duc is ranked 149,726th in the world and 5,677th in the West Pacific for Most Devout, with 3.28 Prayers Per Hour.
