The Architeuthis Dux of Cthonian Wasteland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Armaitus Syn with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 30.006 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Imboca. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cthonian Wastelandian economy, worth an astonishing 24,355 trillion szlotaks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 811,686 szlotaks, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, and popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the New Imboca River. 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 2,713th in the world and 8th in Wysteria for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 17,751.35 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
