The Lovecraftian Horror of The Cult of the Great Cthulhu is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Priest Howard Phillips with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and feral children. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.516 billion Cthulhu Cultists enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality and Industry are also considered important, while Law & Order and Healthcare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rlyeh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cultic economy, worth 382 trillion cthulheons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 152,075 cthulheons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 631,914 per year while the poor average 23,958, a ratio of 26.4 to 1.

Astronomers are flocking to The Cult of the Great Cthulhu to take advantage of its clear night skies, The Cult of the Great Cthulhu is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, children play Capture the Flag and Capture the Bigtopian General Staff at summer camps, and breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites. 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 155,740th in the world and 5,673rd in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -15.72 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
