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 renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, cheerful population of 28.536 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 aren't funded at all. 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 520 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 18,236 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and many aides in Karistina Rajem's office are known to be serial jaywalkers. 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 154,914th in the world and 9th in The Wheel of Time for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -70.84 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
