The United States of The Jamesian Republic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Scott Lewis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.453 billion Jamesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitol City. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Jamesian economy, worth 786 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 176,517 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, and the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Falcon Dung" has been declared a national treasure. Crime is totally unknown. The Jamesian Republic's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity-Majority.

The Jamesian Republic is ranked 9,545th in the world and 1st in Jamesia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 404.78 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
