The Christmas Colony of Task Force Z is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Abraham Van Helsing with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.433 billion Task Force Zians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Transylvania. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Task Force Zian economy, worth a remarkable 2,502 trillion Mistletoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 296,708 Mistletoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The doctor has cold hands, neighbourhood gossips whip up controversy about those receiving adult merchandise, the government funds large training centres to turn Christmas Elves into functioning members of society, and Task Force Zian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Task Force Z's national animal is the Christmas Elf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Task Force Z is ranked 6,274th in the world and 37th in Forest for Highest Economic Output, with 2,502 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
