The Great Hungry Satyr of James Kialga is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Yamez with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.964 billion Yamez are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, with Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Industry are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goat City. The average income tax rate is 51.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Yamez economy, worth 172 trillion OwO's a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 28,846 OwO's, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, sex changes are routinely performed at James Kialga's hospitals, the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, and builders across James Kialga are blocked up with orders for new public loos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. James Kialga's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult of Yamez.

James Kialga is ranked 151,635th in the world and 90th in Caer Sidi for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 344.23 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
