The Terrible Swift Sword of James Cook is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its smutty television, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 13.52 billion James Cookians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 55.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The James Cookian economy, worth 492 trillion $$s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,398 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Former arsonists can be found on local fire brigades, former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. James Cook's national animal is the Dolly Varden, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

James Cook is ranked 159,048th in the world and 1st in Society Islands for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 128.6 Tourists Per Hour.
