Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 28.64 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 7,185 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 250,882 peat mosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skateparks can be found in every city, future leaders of Short shorts regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. 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 64,753rd in the world and 222nd in Europe for Largest Black Market, with 403 billion Standard Monetary Units.
