The Rogue Nation of The Horror Channel is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ringo Juna with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 28.484 billion Horror Channelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ringovania. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Horror Channelian economy, worth a remarkable 4,396 trillion Brains a year, is highly specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 154,365 Brains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

For just a few extra Brains Horror Channelians can get new driving records with their new cars, life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, and the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans. 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 2,306th in the world and 61st in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.66 Years.
