The Benevolent Church of Jim the Baptist is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jim McCann Almighty with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.793 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 receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jim Town. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jim the Baptistian economy, worth 945 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 249,387 Prayers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, all marriages are arranged by the government, many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, and books are so highly regarded in Jim the Baptist that libraries are often revered as holy shrines. Crime is totally unknown. 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 164,919th in the world and 961st in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 930.36 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
