The Corporate Theocracy of The Merry Christmas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Santa with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.711 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 7,875 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 362,758 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,729,350 per year while the poor average 44,718, a ratio of 38.7 to 1.

Most pop videos prominently feature the Christmas flag, celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, the government is outsourcing itself, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. 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 230,454th in the world and 8th in The Arctic for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -53.67 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
