“Strong and Stubborn”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Dominator
Location: The Wheel of Time
The Borderland Queendom of Karistina is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Karistina Rajem with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate population of 23.1 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to the Environment, with areas such as Commerce and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rajem. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Citizens must have a license to operate a computer, all footpaths have tollbooths, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karistina's national animal is the falcon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the mark.
