The Ever Wanking Ghost of Short shorts is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 29.284 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 powerhouse Short shortsian economy, worth a remarkable 7,261 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 247,973 peat mosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every week is blindness awareness week, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, Short shortsians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, and the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions. 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 179,080th in the world and 712th in Europe for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 32.6 Workforce Participation Rate.
