The Death Wish of Jim C is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Socrates with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 23.759 billion Jim Cians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athens. The average income tax rate is 87.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Jim Cian economy, worth a remarkable 4,765 trillion Hemlocks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 200,597 Hemlocks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the dartboard at the Jim Cian Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Socrates's face, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jim C's national animal is the Socrates, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

Jim C is ranked 208,072nd in the world and 423rd in NationStates for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 16.99 Tourists Per Hour.
