The Holy Principality of Saint Mark

Population6.71 billion

CapitalSanctus Leo
LeaderHis Serene Highness Prince Marcarius


The Serene Sanctuary of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Serene Highness Prince Marcarius with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.71 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 government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus Leo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markian economy, worth a remarkable 1,931 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 287,886 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,048,618 per year while the poor average 56,176, a ratio of 18.7 to 1.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to The Holy Principality of Saint Mark as a reminder of their "special relationship", and the countryside is shrouded by wind farms. 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 21,040th in the world and 471st in the West Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,062.62 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
