The Holy Principality of Saint Mark

Population7.423 billion

CapitalSanctus Leo
LeaderHis Serene Highness Prince Marcarius


The Dreaming Dead of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by His Serene Highness Prince Marcarius with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.423 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, with Environment, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 36.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markian economy, worth a remarkable 2,176 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 293,214 Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,210,868 per year while the poor average 46,680, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

Lion is one of the most popular forenames in The Holy Principality of Saint Mark, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and a degree in His Serene Highness Prince Marcarius Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. 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 438th in the world and 8th in the West Pacific for Most Devout, with 15,133.28 Prayers Per Hour.
