The Republic of New Rlyeh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Imperious Leader Oderus with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16.443 billion New Rlyehians 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 tiny government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Citizen-Warrior of New Rlyeh economy, worth a remarkable 1,944 trillion DONGS a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 118,230 DONGS, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, the news is showing footage of Imperious Leader Oderus bullying an old man to the point of tears, and pirates armed with sonar-guided semi-autonomous torpedos and laser weapons systems are often seen capturing fishing trawlers. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. New Rlyeh's national animal is the Star-Spawn of Cthulhu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Rlyeh is ranked 215,497th in the world and 682nd in The Black Hawks for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.57 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
