The Holy Ecclesiarch of Saint Cinder is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Pope Victor Saltzpyr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, ritual sacrifices, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.812 billion Saint Cinderians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sic Mundus Creatus Est. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Cinderian economy, worth 718 trillion Blessings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 255,614 Blessings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, soldiers go to war dressed in cassocks and robes, every day at 4am Saint Cinderians wake to pray for the sun to rise, and police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Cinder's national animal is the The Great Auk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pantheon of Saint Cinder.

Saint Cinder is ranked 9,745th in the world and 345th in the South Pacific for Best Weather, with 213 meters of sunlight.
