The Saint James Islands

Population12.607 billion

LeaderPremier Ainsley Callahan


The 🐌 Molluscratic Republic 🐌 of The Saint James Islands is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Premier Ainsley Callahan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.607 billion Saint James Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Georgetown. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saint James Islander economy, worth a remarkable 1,773 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,646 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, edutainment video games are taking The Saint James Islands's students to the next level, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and Saint James Islanders are fixin' ta comma any way they wanna. Crime is totally unknown. The Saint James Islands's national animal is the snail, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Saint James Islands is ranked 53,672nd in the world and 17th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Black Market, with 1.29 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
