The The Saintly Saint of St James is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Lucas Moningham with an even hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.144 billion St Jamesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamestown. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Tourism and Furniture Restoration.

There is a dearth of space for new houses, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, and local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. St James's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is The Church of Saint James, and its currency is the Jameion.

St James is ranked 10th in Natan Region and 104,269th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
