The Snarky Solar Observer of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Salvor Hardin with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 35.423 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Four Ecks. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 5,256 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 148,384 Zevons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teen parties are often ruined by wet blanket chaperones, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, the government has enacted freedom of information, and the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches. 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 433rd in the world and 7th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 30,918.27 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
