The República Federal of Republica JIM is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by JIM with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.852 billion JIMS are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Juanopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient nachense economy, worth a remarkable 2,959 trillion JIMPAPIERS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 272,673 JIMPAPIERS, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,275,653 per year while the poor average 34,818, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

The wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Republica JIM's national animal is the Hormiga, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cristiana Catolica Apostólica y Romana.

Republica JIM is ranked 11,503rd in the world and 34th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Devout, with 1,855.77 Prayers Per Hour.
