Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Coalition of St James is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lucas Moningham with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 6.731 billion St Jamesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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

The strong St Jamesian economy, worth 591 trillion Jameions a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,846 Jameions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, Book Publishing facilities are being turned into Lion habitats, and government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders. 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, and its national religion is The Church of Saint James.

St James is ranked 138,734th in the world and 19th in Natan Region for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.55 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
