The Holy Ecclesiarch of Saint Cinder is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Pope Sajuuk with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.769 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, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, 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 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Cinderian economy, worth a remarkable 1,556 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, quite 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 326,353 Blessings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, and state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Pope Sajuuk's portrait. 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 113,263rd in the world and 4,999th in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,941.97 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
