Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Coalition of St James is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lucas Moningham with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 6.89 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 605 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 14,827th in the world and 2nd in Natan Region for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 5,577.73 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
