The Federation of Short shorts is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed population of 4.844 billion, all of whom are zombies, Short shortsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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.

The nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, a government program is underway to revitalize Short shorts's beaches, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 365th in Europe and 114,661st in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -28 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Short shorts is currently researching a cure.
