The Corporate Theocracy of The Merry Christmas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Santa with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.28 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 8,192 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 367,714 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,902,069 per year while the poor average 38,621, a ratio of 49.2 to 1.

Polite commuters on the Christmas Town Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, and the industries of The Merry Christmas are coughing all the way to the bank. 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 201,933rd in the world and 9th in The Arctic for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 323.01 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
