The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed population of 24.76 billion Short shortsians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and guns are banned. 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, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the peat moss.

Short shorts is ranked 7th in Europe and 457th in the world for Best Weather, with 673 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
