The Holy Ecclesiarch of Saint Cinder is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Pope Dio with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.539 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, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy isn'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 95.1%.

The powerhouse Saint Cinderian economy, worth 237 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 154,106 Blessings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Saint Cinder, student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and Pope Dio's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners. 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.
