The Holy Ecclesiarch of Saint Cinder is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Pope Dio with an iron fist, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.998 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, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sic Mundus Creatus Est. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Cinderian economy, worth 391 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 impressive 196,150 Blessings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, monarchs only get custody of the royal crown on holidays and weekends, undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, and public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women. 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 109,091st in the world and 1,589th in the South Pacific for Largest Populations, with 2.00 billion Capita.
