Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Borderland Queendom of Karistina is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Karistina Rajem with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.211 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, socially-minded morass — is primarily concerned with Environment, with Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Industry and Spirituality receive no funds. 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 516 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 18,307 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, prices for nearly everything reach all time highs as business tax breaks are discontinued, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and all footpaths have tollbooths. 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 124,988th in the world and 8th in The Wheel of Time for Highest Poor Incomes, with 15,747.31 Standard Monetary Units.
