The Federation of Short shorts is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed population of 21.82 billion 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Education and Defence are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
The fastest growing demographic of porn viewership is twelve to seventeen, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. 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, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the peat moss.
