The Holy Principality of Saint Mark was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 302

The Serene Sanctuary of The Holy Principality of Saint Mark is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by His Serene Highness Prince Marcarius with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.162 billion Saint Markians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus Leo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Markian economy, worth a remarkable 2,833 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 309,311 Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,555,859 per year while the poor average 34,367, a ratio of 45.3 to 1.

Bars are packed at all hours, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, and torture is illegal. 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 188,835th in the world and 5,312th in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -7.07 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
