The Delegate Ejector of The Cult of the Great Cthulhu is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Priest Howard Phillips with an even hand, and remarkable for its feral children, ban on automobiles, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.82 billion Cthulhu Cultists enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality and Industry are also considered important, while Law & Order and Education 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 37.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cultic economy, worth 870 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 180,613 cthulheons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 661,478 per year while the poor average 34,944, a ratio of 18.9 to 1.

The roads are virtually falling apart, religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs, the price of freedom is about half a million cthulheons, and skateboarding is the only legal way to travel. 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.

The Cult of the Great Cthulhu is ranked 207,881st in the world and 8,919th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -18.76 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
