The Benevolent Church of Jim the Baptist is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jim McCann Almighty with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.402 billion Jim the Baptistians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Christmas Town. The average income tax rate is 52.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Jim the Baptistian economy, worth 468 trillion Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 194,855 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Jim the Baptist's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Jim the Baptist.

Jim the Baptist is ranked 171,484th in the world and 933rd in Europe for Nudest, with 75.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
