Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Borderland Queendom of Karistina is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Karistina Rajem with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 28.707 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 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 523 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 18,246 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many aides in Karistina Rajem's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, videogames like 'Equalia: Knights of Self-Confidence' are proving inexplicably unpopular, and fruit pickers with degrees in falcon psychology are a common sight. 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 116,084th in the world and 7th in The Wheel of Time for Most Pro-Market, scoring 17.22 on the Rand Index.
