The Grizzly Sheep of Drop Your Pants is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Shepard with an even hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, avant-garde cinema, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 32.229 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheeptropolis. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sheepish economy, worth a remarkable 8,132 trillion Dali's Patiences a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 252,328 Dali's Patiences, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,050,669 per year while the poor average 39,613, a ratio of 26.5 to 1.

The 'sing-a-long with The Shepard' album is a popular souvenir, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and the military has declared that 'a woman's place is in the mess hall'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 53,260th in the world and 4th in Ireland for Most Pro-Market, scoring 58.44 on the Rand Index.
