The Rogue Nation of The Horror Channel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ringo Juna with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 23.107 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 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Horror Channelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,760 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 162,761 Brains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, the country's motorways are surprisingly quiet, supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small caliber bullets, and knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy. 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 1,942nd in the world and 40th in the Rejected Realms for Smartest Citizens, with 159.14 Quips Per Hour.
