The Borderland Queendom of Karistina is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Karistina Rajem with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, parental licensing program, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 37.272 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, with Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Industry receive no funds. 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 687 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 18,445 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Karistina, the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, and NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people. 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 207,657th in the world and 2nd in The Wheel of Time for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 19,443 Standard Monetary Units.
