The Holy Principality of Saint Mark

Population3.772 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 a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.772 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 prioritizes 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 25.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markian economy, worth 976 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 258,909 Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 973,092 per year while the poor average 48,089, a ratio of 20.2 to 1.

In musicals everybody's a little bit racist, nine out of ten citizens of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and The Holy Principality of Saint Mark's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. 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 126,558th in the world and 5,426th in the West Pacific for Most Average, scoring 31.94 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
