The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 28.46 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 7,073 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 248,530 peat mosses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, euthanasia is legal, and motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies. 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.
