The Theocracy of Dreaming Rlyeh is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Carter Randall with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 8.986 billion Dreaming Rlyehians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkham. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.0%.

The powerhouse Dreaming Rlyehian economy, worth a remarkable 1,125 trillion Ithaca Hours a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 125,202 Ithaca Hours, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 924,511 per year while the poor average 5,107, a ratio of 181 to 1.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, President Carter Randall has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and President Carter Randall has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Dreaming Rlyeh's national animal is the Gibbering Mouther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dreaming Rlyeh is ranked 86,924th in the world and 18th in Mordor for Most Conservative, scoring 58.23 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
