OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of GreenJackets is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Flying Spaghetti Monster with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18.813 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 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.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and euthanasia is illegal. 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 37th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 414 Whatever.
