The Constitutional Monarchy of Jamesburgh is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King James with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 32.29 billion Jacobites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration 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 Highclere. The average income tax rate is 25.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jacobean economy, worth a remarkable 8,547 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and 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 264,703 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, it's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from King James's childhood, and confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle". 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 17,261st in the world and 22nd in New West Indies for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,458.72 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
