The Former Cultist Republic of Nyarlathothep is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Comrade Piyou with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate population of 3.976 billion Nyarlathothepians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azathothgrad. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nyarlathothepian economy, worth 525 trillion eurodollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 132,188 eurodollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billion-eurodollar sentient AI killbots roll through the streets dispensing hot dogs and T-shirts, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, even God cannot save you in Nyarlathothep, and foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Azathothgrad Wolves' triumph against long odds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nyarlathothep's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nyarlathothep is ranked 10,823rd in the world and 199th in Europe for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 378.05 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
