The Monarchical Republic of Christos is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Aldritch Killian with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.441 billion Christosians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auroria. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Christosian economy, worth 581 trillion Dollarmarks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,339 Dollarmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government has legalised small-scale capitalism, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Christos's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Christos is ranked 153,443rd in the world and 59th in International Democratic Union for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.44 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
