Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 26.116 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.

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 5,147 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 197,100 peat mosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Customs turn away those considered to have an unfavourable ethnicity, senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, the government has outlawed extremist parties, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. 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 1st in Europe and 45th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 20 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
