The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 23.867 billion 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.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, main battle tanks stalk the woods of Short shorts in search of three toed sloths, and a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun. 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 440th in Europe and 122,161st in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -15 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
