The Corporate Theocracy of The Merry Christmas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Santa with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.925 billion Christmasites are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. 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 9,625 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 386,197 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,591,579 per year while the poor average 61,697, a ratio of 25.8 to 1.

Subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne, and Santa's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Christmas Town generates millions of views. 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 267,122nd in the world and 10th in The Arctic for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.46 crimes per hour.
