The Bat Benevolent Church of Jim the Baptist is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jim McCann Almighty with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, digital currency, and lack of airports. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 1.974 billion Jim the Baptistians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Administration, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Christmas Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Jim the Baptistian economy, worth 324 trillion Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 164,635 Gold Coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 539,908 per year while the poor average 37,677, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

Teenage girls in knee-length surfer shorts have become a cultural icon of Jim the Baptist, the same 1974 social media bloggers always loudly and immediately agree with Jim McCann Almighty's every word on Twitcher, students in Jim the Baptist's schools rarely attend their classes, and no one appreciates Jim McCann Almighty's costume of King Oswyn V (Jim the Baptist has found 9 easter eggs). Crime is well under control. Jim the Baptist's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Jim the Baptist.

Jim the Baptist is ranked 17,176th in the world and 280th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 84.23 on the Human Development Index.
