Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Borderland Queendom of Karistina is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Karistina Rajem with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 25.268 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 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 454 trillion marks a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 17,994 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Karistina Rajem. 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 2nd in The Wheel of Time and 124,380th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -31 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
