The Rogue Nation of The Horror Channel is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ringo Juna with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 26.776 billion Horror Channelians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Horror Channelian economy, worth a remarkable 4,174 trillion Brains a year, is highly specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,896 Brains, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, vaccinations are mandatory, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. 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 3,888th in the world and 42nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Influential, scoring 14,825 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
