Westminster Saint James

Population18.249 billion


The Queen's State of Westminster Saint James is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.249 billion Westminster Saint Jamesians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Industry, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.8%.

The thriving Westminster Saint Jamesian economy, worth 760 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 41,650 betales, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

The tenet of free speech is held dear and voting is voluntary. Crime is a problem. Westminster Saint James's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westminster Saint James is ranked 18,612th in the world and 1st in Great Britain and Northern Ireland for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 7,350 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
