Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Borderland Queendom of Karistina is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Karistina Rajem with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 25.75 billion Karistinans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — is primarily concerned with Environment, although Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Industry and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rajem. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Karistinan economy, worth 463 trillion marks a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 18,000 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Karistina Blood Tithe, and a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Karistina is ranked 3rd in The Wheel of Time and 145,644th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -146 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
