The Republic of Jamesburgh is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King James with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 31.034 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, with Healthcare and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tucson. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jacobean economy, worth a remarkable 8,756 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 282,148 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. 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 23,061st in the world and 29th in New West Indies for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 72.8 Effective Tax Rate.
