The Christian Empire of The Rouge Christmas State is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King David with a fair hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, ritual sacrifices, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.097 billion Rogue Christians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 5,324 trillion Royal Cookies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 440,167 Royal Cookies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,547,138 per year while the poor average 90,758, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

The secret ingredient is love (and MSG), whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Rouge Christmas Statean Embarrassments, businessmen walk out of meetings halfway because their shift is over, and employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM. 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 122nd in the world and 1st in Right to Life for Most Avoided, scoring 3,711.66 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
