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 frequent executions, daily referendums, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.743 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, with Education, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, 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 29.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jim the Baptistian economy, worth a remarkable 1,321 trillion Prayers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 278,582 Prayers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bris parties are all the rage, most barbers are also surgeons, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and gene-engineered sewerjacks don't smell but they do stink. 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 3,076th in the world and 55th in Europe for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,809.37 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
