The Holy Ecclesiarch of Saint Cinder is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Pope Victor Saltzpyr with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, compulsory vegetarianism, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.763 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sic Mundus Creatus Est. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Cinderian economy, worth 694 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 251,197 Blessings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, the police insist that racism does not exist, the nation refuses to provide international aid, and hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success. 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 33,245th in the world and 601st in the South Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 56.15 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
