Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 27.351 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 very strong Short shortsian economy, worth a remarkable 6,050 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 amazing 221,226 peat mosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, Short shorts's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and all footpaths have tollbooths. 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.

Short shorts is ranked 7th in Europe and 1,395th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 224 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
