The Republic of Jamesburgh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King James with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 30.854 billion Jacobites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tucson. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jacobean economy, worth a remarkable 8,665 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 280,858 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Artists are pillars of society, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, high school bands practice by moonlight, and children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Dollar charge on their phone bill. Crime is totally unknown. Jamesburgh's national animal is the Javelina, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Jamesburgh is ranked 2,513th in the world and 4th in New West Indies for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.93 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
