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 notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.97 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 are ignored. 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 548 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 18,296 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through Karistina Rajem's window to draw attention to their issues, and a third of Karistinans are e-certified CEOs. 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 11th in the world and 1st in The Wheel of Time for Longest Average Lifespans, with 99.97 Years.
