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 renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.361 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 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 519 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 18,307 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All footpaths have tollbooths, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead. 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 162,138th in the world and 9th in The Wheel of Time for Highest Average Incomes, with 18,307.77 Standard Monetary Units.
