The Benevolent Church of Jim the Baptist is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jim McCann Almighty with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.61 billion Jim the Baptistians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Education and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jim Town. The average income tax rate is 35.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jim the Baptistian economy, worth 828 trillion Prayers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 229,549 Prayers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Jim the Baptistian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice, and seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu'. Crime is almost non-existent. Jim the Baptist's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Jim the Baptist.

Jim the Baptist is ranked 2,019th in the world and 37th in Europe for Best Weather, with 465 Meters Of Sunlight.
