Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of James Snow is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 19.858 billion James Snowians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant James Snowian economy, worth 79.5 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 4,003 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School uniforms are compulsory, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and all forms of advertising are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. James Snow's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

James Snow is ranked 123,176th in the world and 1,318th in Ancient Lands for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.16 Crimes Per Hour.
