Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Nanny State of St James is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Honor Tull with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, strictly enforced bedtime, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.094 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 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Iacobusi economy, worth a remarkable 1,511 trillion Rudens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 166,222 Rudens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. 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 37,900th in the world and 27th in The Commonwealth Federation for Most Extreme, scoring 24.51 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
