The Bloody and Holy Empire of Cu Math is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Council Of Terrible Elders with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, enslaved workforce, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.125 billion Cu Mathians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Spirituality and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cu Mathis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cu Mathian economy, worth a remarkable 4,012 trillion Hematodollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 221,374 Hematodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,865,237 per year while the poor average 4,919, a ratio of 379 to 1.

Prohibition has allowed a Maxtopian immigrant known only as "Nipples" to establish an illicit breast milk syndicate, the nation is under martial law, The Council Of Terrible Elders has been declared supreme ruler for all eternity, and firing squads regularly execute dissidents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Cu Math's national animal is the Royal Leech of Cthulhu, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Worship of The Elder Gods.

Cu Math is ranked 204,923rd in the world and 7,467th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 27.68 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
