The Architeuthis Dux of Cthonian Wasteland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Armaitus Syn with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 30.34 billion Cthonian Wastelandians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Imboca. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cthonian Wastelandian economy, worth an astonishing 24,938 trillion szlotaks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 821,973 szlotaks, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

It's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it", skyscrapers get built in just days, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cthonian Wasteland's national animal is the Plush Cthulhu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Worship of the Elder Gods.

Cthonian Wasteland is ranked 243,270th in the world and 67th in Wysteria for Most Secular, with 0.91 Atheism Rate.
