The Rogue Nation of The Horror Channel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Ringo Juna with an iron fist, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 22.007 billion Horror Channelians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, 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 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Horror Channelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,630 trillion Brains a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,971 Brains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Horror Channelians, and drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth. 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 150,455th in the world and 3,058th in the Rejected Realms for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 8.1 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
