The Republic of New Rlyeh is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Imperious Leader Oderus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 17.11 billion New Rlyehians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Citizen-Warrior of New Rlyeh economy, worth a remarkable 2,062 trillion DONGS a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 120,538 DONGS, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-DONG treacle machine, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, and tens of thousands of New Rlyehians rock the night away at the annual SuperLob. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. New Rlyeh's national animal is the Star-Spawn of Cthulhu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Rlyeh is ranked 2,661st in the world and 7th in The Black Hawks for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 153.37 on the Hayek Index.
