The Holy Ecclesiarch of Saint Cinder is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pope Dio with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, anti-smoking policies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.801 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 and International Aid aren'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 95.0%.

The all-consuming Saint Cinderian economy, worth 328 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 impressive 182,506 Blessings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Pope Dio claims tax rises are the result of 'curses', the nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves, to 'cut off family ties' is no longer just a phrase, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. 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 240,353rd in the world and 7,830th in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -18.92 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
