The Merry Christmas

The Corporate Theocracy of The Merry Christmas is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Santa with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.752 billion Christmasites are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Christmas Town. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Christmas economy, worth a remarkable 7,898 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 363,136 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,768,970 per year while the poor average 42,958, a ratio of 41.2 to 1.

This year's hottest seller is plenary indulgence, mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism, the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, and it turns out that money can buy you happiness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Merry Christmas's national animal is the reindeer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christmas Spirit.

The Merry Christmas is ranked 229,679th in the world and 8th in The Arctic for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.91 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
