The Saint James Confederation

Population2.354 billion



The Free Land of The Saint James Confederation is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 2.354 billion Saint James Confederationians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariascola. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Saint James Confederationian economy, worth 125 trillion shillings a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Cheese Exports. Average income is 53,424 shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government spends millions of shillings every year prosecuting spammers, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, and sex changes are routinely performed at The Saint James Confederation's hospitals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Saint James Confederation's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Saint James Confederation is ranked 32,069th in the world and 7th in Field Egg Group for Most Developed, scoring 65.37 on the Human Development Index.
