The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 25.759 billion Short shortsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The income tax rate is 100%.
The Short shortsian economy, worth a remarkable 4,515 trillion peat mosses a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,292 peat mosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, anti-government web sites are springing up, and ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Short shorts's national animal is the three toed sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.
