Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rogue Nation of The Horror Channel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ringo Juna with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.873 billion The Horror Channelians 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.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ringovania. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient The Horror Channelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,541 trillion Brains a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,205 Brains, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Votes of no confidence regularly remove unwanted MPs, The Horror Channel's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Ringovania as a backdrop. 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, and its national religion is no such thing.

The Horror Channel is ranked 23,545th in the world and 454th in the Rejected Realms for Most Authoritarian, with 1.44 Stalins.
