The Holy Ecclesiarch of Saint Cinder is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Pope Dio with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.183 billion Saint Cinderians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sic Mundus Creatus Est. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Cinderian economy, worth 468 trillion Blessings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 214,739 Blessings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Drug-related crimes carry the death penalty, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, male celebrity chefs are laughed at for their lack of manliness, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Cinder's national animal is the The Great Auk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pantheon of Saint Cinder.

Saint Cinder is ranked 97,962nd in the world and 3,452nd in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,440.9 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
