The Holy Principality of Saint Mark

Population16.863 billion

CapitalSanctus Leo
LeaderHis Serene Highness Prince Marcarius


The Serene Sanctuary of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Serene Highness Prince Marcarius with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, daily referendums, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.863 billion Saint Markans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Environment, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus Leo. The average income tax rate is 61.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markan economy, worth a remarkable 6,069 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 359,941 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Many are asking why the latest naval vessel is named after Saint Bartholomeus the Many Handed, Saint Markan novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about His Serene Highness Prince Marcarius, the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, and politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities. 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 44,601st in the world and 364th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 75.11 on the Rand Index.
