The Snarky Red Hand of Bran of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Le Chromosphere with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 31.34 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, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Administration 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 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 3,788 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 120,894 Zevons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Trespassers entering Le Chromosphere's office are immediately vaporized, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, BBD-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award. 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 169,908th in the world and 4,770th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -64.89 on the Rand Index.
