Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 28.331 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 powerhouse Short shortsian economy, worth a remarkable 7,033 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 248,260 peat mosses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, Leader's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, and books are so highly regarded in Short shorts that libraries are often revered as holy shrines. 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 193rd in the world and 3rd in Europe for Longest Average Lifespans, with 94.08 Years.
