The Holy Ecclesiarch of Saint Cinder is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Pope Sajuuk with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.232 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, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sic Mundus Creatus Est. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Cinderian economy, worth a remarkable 1,338 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. 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 316,369 Blessings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, Pope Sajuuk often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. 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 241,046th in the world and 11,351st in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -35.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
