The Delegate Ejector of The Cult of the Great Cthulhu is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Howard Phillips is gonna die soon with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.31 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, with Spirituality and Industry also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rlyeh. The average income tax rate is 42.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cultic economy, worth 962 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 181,227 cthulheons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other, warning signs caution Cthulhu Cultists where they may fall off 'the edge of the world', and teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill. 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 11,253rd in the world and 343rd in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 97,576.11 Standard Monetary Units.
