The Holy Lucky Christmas of Montrandec is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.102 billion Lucky Locals enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hampford. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lucky economy, worth 887 trillion Gold Brains a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 173,964 Gold Brains, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,476,932 per year while the poor average 3,692, a ratio of 400 to 1.

Teach an angler how to phish and he can make a living, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, the ingredients list for most food products covers the entire surface of the packaging, and a PhD just ain't what it used to be. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Montrandec's national animal is the Rudolph Bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Athyism.

Montrandec is ranked 78,447th in the world and 1,649th in the West Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 26.39 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
