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 unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 19.013 billion GreenJacketsians 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 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.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. 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 2,251st in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 161 Dawkins.
