The Snarky Solar Observer of Bhang Bhang Duc
“I know I believe in nothing but it is my nothing”

Regional Influence: Vassal
The Snarky Solar Observer of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Le Chromosphere with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 33.022 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, Environment, 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 96.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 4,355 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 extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,902 Zevons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Four Ecks's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, real chickens replace rooster weather vanes on inner-city rooftop gardens, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. Crime, especially youth-related, 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.
