The Republic of San Jimenez is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lucas Canone with a fair hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 14.758 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gran Teran. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Jimenean economy, worth a remarkable 1,217 trillion Jimenean Pesos a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,512 Jimenean Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, hospitals in San Jimenez are too busy serving the needs of The Western Isles to see Jimeneans, a life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. 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 51,148th in the world and 82nd in The Western Isles for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 3,558.54 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
