The Benevolent Church of Jim the Baptist is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Jim McCann Almighty with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.059 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 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jim the Baptistian economy, worth a remarkable 2,140 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 353,257 Prayers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, Jim the Baptistian schoolgirl uniforms have become alarmingly popular outside Jim the Baptist, and nudity is frowned upon. 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 2,472nd in the world and 26th in Europe for Most Patriotic, with 72.81 flags saluted per person per day.
