The Holy Ecclesiarch of Saint Cinder is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Pope Dio with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.812 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 331 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 and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 182,959 Blessings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Practically perfect royal toddlers tend to say "regrettably not at this juncture" rather than "no", even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, abattoirs are running at full capacity in response to skyrocketing demand, and Harry Potter books are banned. 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 21,341st in the world and 372nd in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 38.72 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
