The Republic of San Jimenez is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lucas Canone with a fair hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 12.077 billion Jimeneans 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gran Teran. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Jimenean economy, worth a remarkable 1,004 trillion Gendrites a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,171 Gendrites, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Jimenean selfishness, defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, and the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Jimenez's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

San Jimenez is ranked 175,689th in the world and 119th in The Western Isles for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -5 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
