The Armed Republic of The New Earth Army is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Bill Django with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 900 million Jedi are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goat Base. The average income tax rate is 22.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Jedi economy, worth 46.3 trillion grams a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,411 grams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Students cut up leftover grams during Arts and Crafts, the government provides its citizenry with the same mass produced rations, Bill Django's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and school children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The New Earth Army's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The New Earth Army is ranked 135,144th in the world and 6,279th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 47.48 on the Human Development Index.
