OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of GreenJackets is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Flying Spaghetti Monster with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18.664 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 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.

Agricultural science is the most competitive subject at GreenJackets's universities, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. 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 3rd in World Pirates Alliance and 37,839th in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 68 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
