|Leader||High Priest Howard Phillips|
|Faith||The Cthulhu Cult|
The Lovecraftian Horror of The Cult of the Great Cthulhu is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by High Priest Howard Phillips with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.343 billion Cthulhu Cultists enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Healthcare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rlyeh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Cultic economy, worth 346 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 147,845 cthulheons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 480,139 per year while the poor average 34,325, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.
Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount New Rlyeh make great practice for foreign snipers, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. 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 can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans, and its national religion is The Cthulhu Cult.
