The Architeuthis Dux of Cthonian Wasteland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Armaitus Syn with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.696 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Imboca. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing industries.

Tax rises are attributed to divine will, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cthonian Wasteland's national animal is the Plush Cthulhu, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Worship of the Elder Gods, and its currency is the szlotak.

Cthonian Wasteland is ranked 43rd in Wysteria and 19,446th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 143 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
