Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Borderland Queendom of Karistina is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Karistina Rajem with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.979 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, 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 511 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 18,275 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rajem spends billions upgrading public transport, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, every workday begins with group therapy, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. 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 7th in the world and 1st in The Wheel of Time for Longest Average Lifespans, with 99.94 Years.
