The Holy Principality of Saint Mark

Population5.945 billion

CapitalSanctus Leo
LeaderHis Radiant Highness Prince Marcarius


The Serene Sanctuary of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by His Radiant Highness Prince Marcarius with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.945 billion Saint Markians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus Leo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markian economy, worth a remarkable 1,671 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 281,104 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 967,712 per year while the poor average 59,825, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.

The justice of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is considered superior to that of other nations, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and euthanasia is illegal. 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 4,646th in the world and 117th in the West Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 80.63 Workforce Participation Rate.
