Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Coalition of St James is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Honor Tull with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.744 billion Iacobites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamestown. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The all-consuming Iacobusi economy, worth 967 trillion Rudens a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,926 Rudens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. 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 nonexistent.

St James is ranked 176,356th in the world and 15th in Natan Region for Most Avoided, scoring 0.37 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
