The Holy Principality of Saint Mark

Population4.321 billion

CapitalSanctus Leo
LeaderHis Radiant Highness Prince Marcarius


The Serene Sanctuary of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by His Radiant Highness Prince Marcarius with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.321 billion Saint Markians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus Leo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markian economy, worth a remarkable 1,147 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 265,603 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 901,973 per year while the poor average 57,701, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

The world still seems flat to some people in space, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, and children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Mark charge on their phone bill. Crime is totally unknown. The Holy Principality of Saint Mark's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is ranked 243rd in the world and 3rd in the West Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 14,920.41 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
