OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of GreenJackets is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Flying Spaghetti Monster with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18.051 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 is mainly concerned with 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.

Concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule, surfers ride tsunamis of record height and toxicity, murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. 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 120th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 30 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
