The Christian Empire of The Rouge Christmas State is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Andrew Rose of United Massachusetts with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.306 billion Rogue Christians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xavier Heights. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Rouge Christmas Statean economy, worth a remarkable 4,404 trillion Royal Cookies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 427,354 Royal Cookies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,630,609 per year while the poor average 77,486, a ratio of 21.0 to 1.

Hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, the Tiger stadiums are open 24/7, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Rouge Christmas State's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Rouge Christmas State is ranked 82nd in the world and 1st in Right to Life for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 50,736.69 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
