The Armed Republic of GreenJackets is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Flying Spaghetti Monster with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 17.785 billion 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 concentrates mainly on 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.
The country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', the government seizes all major gold finds, and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. 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.
