The Borderland Queendom of Karistina is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Karistina Rajem with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 39.176 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 Spirituality and Industry 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 726 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 18,535 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Karistina Rajem is a silly poophead, racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, Viagra factories are being converted to producing antimalarials for Bigtopian orphans, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. 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 275,776th in the world and 9th in Non Binary Safe Space for Most Avoided, scoring 0.24 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
