The Christmas Colony of Task Force Z is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Abraham Van Helsing with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.554 billion Task Force Zians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Transylvania. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Task Force Zian economy, worth a remarkable 1,846 trillion Mistletoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 an amazing 281,788 Mistletoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, the military is plagued with unethical researchers, cowboys often wear wolfskin jackets to the saloon, and conspiracy nuts claim that the government is trying to bring about an end to civilisation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Task Force Z's national animal is the Christmas Elf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Task Force Z is ranked 172,423rd in the world and 308th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.73 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
