Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rogue Nation of The Horror Channel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Ringo Juna with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.476 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 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Horror Channelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,546 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 165,148 Brains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Airport security is provided by private companies, educators and parents alike are allowing children to view the internet again after violent videos were purged, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments. 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 44,634th in the world and 856th in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 95.01 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
