The City-state of Free Port of Cristina is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Nova Maxima Korvini with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.69 billion Cristineses are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cristina. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cristinese economy, worth a remarkable 1,381 trillion Digital Lindas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 294,483 Digital Lindas, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Cristinese emissions at all, politicians are fired for opening subjective statements with "I believe", pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, and Cristinese TV is considered cruel and unusual punishment in other countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Free Port of Cristina's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cristinese Orthodox Church.

Free Port of Cristina is ranked 1,259th in the world and 3rd in Eurth for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 256.79 on the Hayek Index.
