The Y Ddraig Goch Orllewinol of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Le Chromosphere with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.5 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, corrupt morass — prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important, 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 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 3,929 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 124,735 Zevons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, the big red machine has ground to a halt, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, and ticket touts are blamed for the downfall of communism. 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 1,427th in the world and 26th in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 10,259.69 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
