The Holy Principality of Saint Mark

Population5.57 billion

CapitalSanctus Leo
LeaderHis Radiant Highness Prince Marcarius


The Christmas Gift Giver of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by His Radiant Highness Prince Marcarius with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.57 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, 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 37.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markian economy, worth a remarkable 1,553 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 278,824 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 932,669 per year while the poor average 61,961, a ratio of 15.1 to 1.

Breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, vaccinations are mandatory, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and artists are pillars of society. 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 2,379th in the world and 43rd in the West Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 174,265.55 Standard Monetary Units.
