The Borderland Queendom of Karistina is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Karistina Rajem with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 23.94 billion Karistinans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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.

Multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the mark.

Karistina is ranked 1st in The Wheel of Time and 7th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 145 on the Enoch Index.
