The Gibbering Madness of Al-Khadhulu is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by God Emperor H P Lovecraft with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 34.996 billion Al-Khadhuluans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Innsmouth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.
The Al-Khadhuluan economy, worth a remarkable 3,157 trillion VEXED SOYLENT GREENBACKS a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 90,221 VEXED SOYLENT GREENBACKS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 298,066 per year while the poor average 20,423, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.
The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', third world countries are rich in "I Love Innsmouth" t-shirts, the CEO of Laws Incorporated must sign off on all new bills, and factories grind to a halt every time there is an election. Crime is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Al-Khadhulu's national animal is the ABOMINATION CTHULHU, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
