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 anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.395 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 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 537 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 18,281 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Karistina Blood Tithe, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and every week is blindness awareness week. 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 36th in the world and 1st in The Wheel of Time for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 99 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
