Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 26.222 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 strong Short shortsian economy, worth a remarkable 5,262 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 200,701 peat mosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, retired racing three toed sloths are served truffles for breakfast, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. 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 70th in Europe and 9,748th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 12 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
