The Nationalist State of Jamesreich is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor James with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.313 billion Jamesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamestown. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jamesreichian economy, worth 468 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 202,419 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chancellor James's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jamesreich's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Riskaism.

Jamesreich is ranked 232,165th in the world and 1,040th in Europe for Most Primitive, scoring -316.97 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
