Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Nanny State of St James is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Honor Tull with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.001 billion Iacobites love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamestown. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Iacobusi economy, worth a remarkable 1,091 trillion Rudens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,365 Rudens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Iacobusi officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. St James's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is nonexistent.

St James is ranked 118,737th in the world and 52nd in Allied Federation of Nations for Most Primitive, scoring -108.49 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
