The Dictatorship of Cthulhus rise is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 451 million Cthulhus riseans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 54.3%.

The sizeable but inefficient Cthulhus risean economy, worth 12.4 trillion bloods a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 27,383 bloods, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, the prevalence of circular logic frequently renders parliamentary observers dizzy, voting district maps are said to resemble a tyrannosaurus eating the capital, and the government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cthulhus rise's national animal is the cthulhu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cthulhus rise is ranked 123,322nd in the world and 6th in Night Rise for Highest Economic Output, with 12.3 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
