OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of GreenJackets is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by the Flying Spaghetti Monster with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 19.73 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.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient GreenJacket economy, worth a remarkable 9,199 trillion Shags a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 466,261 Shags, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,704,528 per year while the poor average 90,468, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, anti-government web sites are springing up, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', and all streets are privately owned toll roads. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. GreenJackets's national animal is the pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

GreenJackets is ranked 2nd in World Pirates Alliance and 92,852nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.069 Stalins.
