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 parental licensing program, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.161 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 532 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 18,273 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Banana distribution among collective farm workers is an important topic in public discourse, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Karistinan language, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. 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 180,256th in the world and 3rd in The Wheel of Time for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 13.89 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
