The Holy Principality of Saint Mark

Population4.855 billion

CapitalSanctus Leo
LeaderHis Radiant Highness Prince Marcarius


The Serene Sanctuary of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is a massive, genial nation, ruled by His Radiant Highness Prince Marcarius with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.855 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Spirituality, and Industry 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 32.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markian economy, worth a remarkable 1,330 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 274,070 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 929,153 per year while the poor average 59,692, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, research into 'designer babies' is banned, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers. 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 45,198th in the world and 1,860th in the West Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.62 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
