The Holy Principality of Saint Mark was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 364

The Serene Sanctuary of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Serene Highness Prince Marcarius with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.254 billion Saint Markans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Environment, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus Leo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markan economy, worth a remarkable 4,455 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 336,145 Marks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,117,528 per year while the poor average 22,409, a ratio of 94.5 to 1.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity, and companies balk at paying their workers. 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 1,832nd in the world and 31st in the West Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 188.72 quips per hour.
