OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 24.973 billion Short shortsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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.

Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, all guns must be registered, senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million peat moss battlesuits. 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 174th in Europe and 38,693rd in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 65 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
