The Benevolent Church of Jim the Baptist is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jim McCann Almighty with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, aversion to nipples, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.99 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 relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Administration, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jim Town. The average income tax rate is 49.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jim the Baptistian economy, worth a remarkable 1,020 trillion Prayers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 255,852 Prayers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

East Lebatuck tests its moon rovers in the barren wasteland of rural Jim the Baptist, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, laborers are building walls and making Wezeltonia pay for it, and teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house. Crime is totally unknown. 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 170,603rd in the world and 857th in Europe for Most Conservative, scoring 37.25 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
