The Republic of Jamesburgh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King James with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 28.575 billion Jacobites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small, liberal, socially-minded 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 36.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jacobean economy, worth a remarkable 8,207 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 287,242 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art. 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 144,584th in the world and 105th in Conifer for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -9.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
