The Theocracy of Saint Cinder is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its closed borders, triple-decker prams, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 561 million 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, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sic Mundus Creatus Est. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Saint Cinderian economy, worth 24.1 trillion Blessings a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,020 Blessings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Unemployed mercenaries drift the country looking for new careers, family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, and corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Saint Cinder is ranked 25,150th in the world and 875th in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,284.82 Tourists Per Hour.
