The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 25.52 billion Short shortsians 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.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The income tax rate is 100%.

The Short shortsian economy, worth a remarkable 4,334 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 impressive 169,835 peat mosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and criminals are thrown to the three toed sloths to repay their debt to society. 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 7th in Europe and 249th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,519.4 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
