The Grizzly Sheep of Drop Your Pants is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Shepard with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 29.198 billion Sheep 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.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheeptropolis. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Sheepish economy, worth a remarkable 4,385 trillion Green Grasses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,214 Green Grasses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, former royals stand on the street corner with signs reading "will cut ribbons for money", the Sheepish basket weaving sector is on the brink of collapse as cheap imports flood the market, and the number of students attending university has reached a record high. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drop Your Pants's national animal is the Zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Monks of Sheep.

Drop Your Pants is ranked 18,427th in the world and 3rd in Ireland for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 264.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
