The Rogue Nation of The Horror Channel is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ringo Juna with an iron fist, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 17.947 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ringovania. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, meat-eating is frowned upon, and religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Horror Channel's national animal is the free range zombie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is no such thing, and its currency is the brain.

The Horror Channel is ranked 3,432nd in the Rejected Realms and 121,095th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
