The Democratic States of Krampustown is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Krampus with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, enforced nudity, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.992 billion Krampustownians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Christmastown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Krampustownian economy, worth a remarkable 1,095 trillion Krampuscoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 219,480 Krampuscoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,053,820 per year while the poor average 26,691, a ratio of 39.5 to 1.

In its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes, Krampustown has become a gigantic dustbowl filled with tourists and mean desperados, pro-life activists often lecture pregnant women undergoing routine prenatal screening, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Krampustown's national animal is the Goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Krampustown is ranked 1,434th in the world and 1st in Christmas for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 251.79 on the Hayek Index.
