The Benevolent Church of Jim the Baptist is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jim McCann Almighty with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.603 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 is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Administration, and Environment 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 36.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jim the Baptistian economy, worth 829 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 230,185 Prayers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, 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, and the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice. 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 1,971st in the world and 36th in Europe for Best Weather, with 470 Meters Of Sunlight.
