The City-state of Free Port of Cristina is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Nova Maxima Korvini with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.804 billion Cristineses are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cristina. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cristinese economy, worth a remarkable 1,889 trillion Digital Lindas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 325,589 Digital Lindas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,601,614 per year while the poor average 37,796, a ratio of 42.4 to 1.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases, foreign countries consider stepping on their grass to be a serious offense, and many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Free Port of Cristina's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cristinese Orthodox Church.

Free Port of Cristina is ranked 103,268th in the world and 62nd in Eurth for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
