The Holy Principality of Saint Mark

Population10.366 billion

CapitalSanctus Leo
LeaderHis Serene Highness Prince Marcarius


The Serene Sanctuary of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Serene Highness Prince Marcarius with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.366 billion Saint Markians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus Leo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markian economy, worth a remarkable 3,266 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 315,143 Marks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,722,477 per year while the poor average 29,476, a ratio of 58.4 to 1.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison. 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 6,050th in the world and 118th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 13,485 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
