The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 24.939 billion 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.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Short shorts to be bombproof, it's always rabbit season, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and the world outside is only known of in folklore. 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 258th in Europe and 60,210th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 5 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
