The Godspawn of Nuttland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Cthulhu with an even hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 10.149 billion Nutts are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of R'lyeh. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Nuttlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,717 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 169,186 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, glamping Nutts won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and the nation's new religious police burn blasphemers on bonfires of their own books. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nuttland's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Cult of Cthulhu.

Nuttland is ranked 149,353rd in the world and 5,549th in Balder for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -601.93 on the Hayek Index.
