The Queen's State of Fort Christina is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 20.008 billion Fort Christinans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The powerhouse Fort Christinan economy, worth a remarkable 1,225 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 61,267 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 416,544 per year while the poor average 3,291, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, none has been named as Fort Christina's national religion, the Governor has just been declared ruler of Fort Christina in an international press conference, and Fort Christina has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fort Christina's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.

Fort Christina is ranked 89,449th in the world and 6th in London for Most Influential, scoring 160 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
