The Christian Empire of The Rouge Christmas State is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King David with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.36 billion Rogue Christians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xavier Heights. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Rouge Christmas Statean economy, worth a remarkable 5,443 trillion Royal Cookies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 440,451 Royal Cookies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,495,747 per year while the poor average 95,686, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, Violetist maidens who fall for an outsider must leave their violet light districts in shame, military funding has been stripped back, and a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales'. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Rouge Christmas State's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Rouge Christmas State is ranked 31,691st in the world and 26th in Right to Life for Largest Governments, scoring 21.66 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
