The Holy Empire of Cthulhus rise is a large, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy. The cynical population of 79 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 large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 38.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Cthulhus risean economy, worth 2.19 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, and Retail. 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 27,772 bloods, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation is compulsory, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cthulhus rise's national animal is the cthulhu.

Cthulhus rise is ranked 74,048th in the world and 3rd in Night Rise for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,490.24 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
