The Hastur La Vista of Bhang Bhang Duc is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by August Derleth with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 29.7 billion Lovecraftians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunwich. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bhang Bhang Ducian economy, worth a remarkable 3,286 trillion Necronomicons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,647 Necronomicons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, school football matches are usually five-a-side, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bhang Bhang Duc's national animal is the Dhole Worm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Summoning Great Old Ones.

Bhang Bhang Duc is ranked 1,742nd in the world and 44th in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.12 on the Human Development Index.
