The Benevolent Church of Jim the Baptist is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jim McCann Almighty with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.009 billion Jim the Baptistians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jim Town. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jim the Baptistian economy, worth a remarkable 2,090 trillion Prayers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 347,840 Prayers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gift baskets often contain working nukes, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Jim the Baptist's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Jim the Baptist.

Jim the Baptist is ranked 1,755th in the world and 32nd in Europe for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,647.52 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
