The Cthulhist Imperium of New Communist and Socialist Unions is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Ralts Yggdrasil with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.962 billion Fhtagns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of R' lyeh. The average income tax rate is 90.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Fhtagn economy, worth 277 trillion Cnub Prdghns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 141,489 Cnub Prdghns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, the endangered saltwater humpback Splatoon Squidling is only seen in captivity programs, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and Emperor Ralts Yggdrasil has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Communist and Socialist Unions's national animal is the Splatoon Squidling, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Cthulhism.

Etymology

Although New Communist and Socialist Unions has no etymology, the nickname of the NCSU is Ruskland - Preußen, which originates from the fact that Ruskians(Ruskland) and Preusen(Preußen) who first colonized the area.

History

Pre-History:
It all began when a Aspyae tribe named Preusen began migrating northward due to constant harassment, and they discovered the land where the NCSU is right now, they saw that the land was a perfect land to settle in, and immediately began settling the land, making pacts, alliances, and marriages with the local tribes. A few half decades later, a handful of powerful tribes and weak tribes coexist peacefully, though this peace would not last.

Agricultural Revolution and Age of City-states:
When the technology of farming came to the Preusens, they immediately began putting it into good use, and soon enough, city-states began to pop up in the fertile lands. A few half decades later, a Lomlystok tribe named the Ruskians arrive and settle on uncontested land in the area, they are also peaceful and mingle with the locals and Germans. Some city-states become small kingdoms, who often go to war for land and resources. The Kingdom of Preußen and the Kingdom of Ruskland are born in the late days of the Agricultural Revolution era.

Age of Warring Kingdoms:
At this point of time, city-states are non existent, in place of them are Kingdoms, who are constantly at war with each other for petty reasons, the strongest kingdoms are Preußen and Ruskland, which would unite a decade and a half later, forming Ruskland-Preusen. Charlir Alomia I, along with his supposed heir Ricard, died, and the throne went to his second child Charlir, who became Charlir II. This left his dissenting brothers Ricard and Jehan with strong claims. Charlir was eventually dethroned by Ricard's forces, and he crowned himself as Ricard I, only to be assassinated by Jehan, who was skipped over and Ricard's son Charlir became Charlir III, Jehan assassinated him again, and Jehan was crowned as Jehan I. He would die a little bit early and his house of Alomia would die out, and the only plausible emperor was Nogai Iskatonik, who became Nogai I.

Renaissance-Colonial Period:
After the fact that the Ruskland-Preußen Empire has dominated the area where the NCSU is now. A massive recovery of art, sculptures, and literature before the Age of Warring Kingdoms happened, as well as a massive scientific advancement. Also, a migration of monks from the eastern territories of the Ruskland-Preußen Empire into the western territories established the very popular Cthulhism religion in the empire. Also, at this time, some people from the far west began colonizing the areas south, and there, the empire began to think that this is possible with the advancing technology, and so began the colonial empire of Ruskland-Preußen. Some island territories in the far east were colonized, as well as in the southwest. The empire was at its zenith with homeland territories reaching into the north and east and colonies in the far southwest and southeast. This golden age ended with the Independence Period.

Independence Period:
The Empire was at its peak, with massive colonial territories. However, the discontent in those territories also reached its peak as well, and massive revolts occurred. The empire at the time had some issues as well, being ruled by the now defunct Adelarde Dynasty, who were not that good in administrating the realm, and so weren't able to handle the rebellions, they also lost the eastern territories. They're considered the worst Unionist dynasty. This dynasty's power ended with the last rebellion, which was by Allanderia in the south as you can see in the map. The only vassal or client state that stayed loyal to the crown was Breadbaskets, which was ruled by the Fabler-Castell dynasty at the time. After this is the present, which is where we are today.

The Age of Raiding and Diplomacy:
The empire is now greater, the nation is now called the NCSU, but, food shortages and mass rationing are common, as the nation is situated in the far south. Thus, the Age of Raiding and Diplomacy officially begins. It begins with the raids against the southern regions of the nation of Taever, then raids against the lands of Syadei begin, these yield good loot, as food in massive amounts are shipped back to the homeland for rationing and consumption. Raids against Politiania begin after these raids, and the raids yield spectacular results, as the lands of Politiania are very fertile. The name of the NCSU becomes known to the world, with the nation of Little Oldiron blockading the straits and passages to the Sea of Mercatos. Raiding continues to this day.

Geography

The eastern and northern areas are mostly rocky and mountainous icelands, with massive oil deposits underground and offshore, in the central areas is a large and vast lake, with many forms of exotic wildlife, mostly in the form of fish, and finally, in the west and far south is a harsh and brutal wasteland of ice, this is most of the oil of the empire comes from. Food comes from the client state of Breadbaskets in the north, but this was in the past as they have been annexed as the province of Nordborg, on a unrelated note, there are plans to expand westward, into the fertile lands, and northeastward, where most of the largest and most massive oil deposits are.

Culture

The culture of the NCSU is based on extreme zealousness to Cthulhu and the fact that they are on an icy wasteland, so they should make the most out of the land, this is shown through the NCSU's expertise in agriculture, where they have made significant advances in, and their zealousness is shown by the fact that they still do sacrifices, and they even go as far as human sacrifice, but there have been some restraint in the human sacrifice part, as they only sacrifice war criminals and people who have done serious crimes in the country. The people of the NCSU tend to be selfless and hardworking, with people helping each other in times of need, especially in the far south areas of the nation, where food shortages are extremely common. There also seems to be a small offshoot of this culture in far-flung villages in the far south, the people of these villages are nomadic and they also seem to migrate northward when the winter gets extremely rough. The people in the NCSU seem to have one motto or idea in common, and that is to do all things the hard way in order to get the best results from everything. The people are highly nationalistic, and flags of the NCSU are always seen being waved on the sides of houses and on apartments, for everyone in the NCSU, every day is National Day, due to this extreme nationalism, hate crimes are often committed, and when a humiliating defeat is handed to the NCSU, some suicides have been reported, though these are brushed off as rumors.

The original tribes that were in the area used to clothe themselves with a thick sweater that covered their entire body, this sweater was made out of moose hide and hardland flax. The Preusen tribe that arrived were from the north, which was warmer, so they were wearing thin shirts of ordinary flax, they made sweaters with ordinary flax when they began to migrate southward. The Ruskians then arrived from the east, they were expert hunters, thus they made their clothes with three layers of moose hide, they also had a hardland flax shirt for their rituals. AS their cultures mingled and mixed, their clothing style also mingled, they had agriculture now, so they abandoned their hunting culture, though in some circles the hunting culture still peristed. The national clothing is a very thick 5x layer grey sweater made out of hardland flax, along with thick 2x layer slacks made out of hardland flax.
