Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 26.661 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 Short shortsian economy, worth a remarkable 4,571 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 impressive 171,452 peat mosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax peat mosses each year. 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 3rd in Europe and 131st in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring 1,583.72 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
