OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed population of 25.318 billion Short shortsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, the tenet of free speech is held dear, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. 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 7th in Europe and 368th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 269 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
