|Leader||High Priest Howard Phillips|
|Faith||The Cthulhu Cult|
The Lovecraftian Horror of The Cult of the Great Cthulhu is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by High Priest Howard Phillips with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, feral children, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.367 billion Cthulhu Cultists enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Spirituality are also considered important, while Law & Order and Healthcare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rlyeh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Cultic economy, worth 348 trillion cthulheons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 147,425 cthulheons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 531,206 per year while the poor average 29,256, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.
The right to a fair trial was recently abolished for reasons of convenience, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and pausing for applause during a speech is seen as a form of censorship. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Cult of the Great Cthulhu's national animal is the cuttlefish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is The Cthulhu Cult.
