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 keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18.015 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 on the agenda. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Information Technology industries.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, surveillance cameras are banned, and concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule. 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 36th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 408 Whatever.
