Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Coalition of St James is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Honor Tull with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.104 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamestown. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The very strong St Jamesian economy, worth 669 trillion Rudens a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,194 Rudens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Many aides in Honor Tull's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, and the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of St James's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance. 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 52,864th in the world and 2nd in Natan Region for Most Authoritarian, with 0.45 Stalins.
