The Delegate Ejector of The Cult of the Great Cthulhu is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Howard Phillips is gonna die soon with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of public education, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.465 billion Cthulhu Cultists enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality and Industry are also considered important, while Law & Order and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rlyeh. The average income tax rate is 42.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cultic economy, worth 994 trillion cthulheons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 182,047 cthulheons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, and visions of giant pink cuttlefish are a common side effect after Cthulhu Cultists eat their meals. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Cult of the Great Cthulhu's national animal is the cuttlefish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is The Cthulhu Cult.

The Cult of the Great Cthulhu is ranked 224,029th in the world and 8,896th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 32.71 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
