The Architeuthis Dux of Cthonian Wasteland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Armaitus Syn with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 26.127 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Imboca. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cthonian Wastelandian economy, worth an astonishing 17,865 trillion szlotaks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 683,811 szlotaks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, it turns out that money can buy you happiness, and Cthonian Wasteland's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Worship of the Elder Gods.

Cthonian Wasteland is ranked 598th in the world and 18th in Wysteria for Fattest Citizens, with 72.81 Obesity Rate.
