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 irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18.608 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.

The only places to see pigs now are at local zoos, the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and agricultural science is the most competitive subject at GreenJackets's universities. 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 4th in World Pirates Alliance and 112,062nd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -79 on the Enoch Index.
