The Christmas Borderlands of Mad Citizens is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.683 billion Mad Citizensians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Environment, although Administration, Industry, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and Education aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mad Citizensian economy, worth 600 trillion Golden O2s a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 89,893 Golden O2s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

A girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, the nation refuses to provide international aid, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mad Citizens's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mad Citizens is ranked 207,728th in the world and 445th in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -18.38 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
