Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its closed borders, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 26.502 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The income tax rate is 100%.

The strong Short shortsian economy, worth a remarkable 5,439 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 common. Average income is an amazing 205,240 peat mosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, and voting is voluntary. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Short shorts is ranked 496th in Europe and 126,375th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -12 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
