Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Coalition of St James is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Honor Tull with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.285 billion St Jamesians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamestown. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The thriving St Jamesian economy, worth 778 trillion Rudens a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,799 Rudens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, and stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. St James's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Royal Church of St James.

St James is ranked 141,367th in the world and 9th in Natan Region for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -10 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
