The Republic of Kristanya is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prince with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.177 billion Kristanyans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paisley. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kristanyan economy, worth 122 trillion Pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 56,388 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, and public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kristanya's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kristanya is ranked 199,749th in the world and 6,447th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -5.42 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
