The Republic of James Snow is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its strong anti-business policies. Its compassionate, cynical population of 13.086 billion are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Social Welfare, although Education and Healthcare are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 62%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

School uniforms are compulsory, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and all forms of advertising are banned. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. James Snow's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the dollar.

James Snow is ranked 39th in The Americas and 39,395th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 34 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
