The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 25.164 billion Short shortsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

People are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. 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, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the peat moss.

Short shorts is ranked 378th in Europe and 121,128th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -15 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
