The City-state of Free Port of Cristina is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Nova Maxima Korvini with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.649 billion Cristineses enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt 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 16.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cristinese economy, worth a remarkable 2,455 trillion Digital Lindas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 369,350 Digital Lindas, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, the newest shade developed by Free Port of Cristina's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime is totally unknown. 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 2,091st in the world and 5th in Eurth for Most Developed, scoring 97.55 on the Human Development Index.
