OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of GreenJackets is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by the Flying Spaghetti Monster with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 19.323 billion RGJ have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Education are secondary priorities. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Information Technology industries.

Streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, and GreenJackets is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GreenJackets's national animal is the pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Shag.

GreenJackets is ranked 1st in World Pirates Alliance and 139th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 24 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
