The Holy Principality of Saint Mark

Population10.382 billion

CapitalSanctus Leo
LeaderHis Serene Highness Prince Marcarius


The Serene Sanctuary of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by His Serene Highness Prince Marcarius with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.382 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 aren'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 47.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markian economy, worth a remarkable 3,271 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 315,153 Marks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,722,531 per year while the poor average 29,477, a ratio of 58.4 to 1.

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, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, and bris parties are all the rage. 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 91,154th in the world and 2,924th in the West Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.39 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
