Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Nanny State of St James is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Honor Tull with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.585 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, outspoken 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 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Iacobusi economy, worth a remarkable 1,410 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 164,249 Rudens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. St James's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is nonexistent.

St James is ranked 114,562nd in the world and 54th in Allied Federation of Nations for Highest Drug Use, scoring 52.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
