The Grizzly Sheep of Drop Your Pants is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Shepard with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 34.304 billion Sheep are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheeptropolis. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Sheepish economy, worth a remarkable 9,810 trillion Dali's Patiences a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 285,974 Dali's Patiences, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 825,828 per year while the poor average 78,567, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Sheepish beaches, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, citizens volunteer for tax audits to avoid the 80-page Practical Assessment Survey Tool On Religions, and the Drop Your Pants Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 Sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Monks of Sheep.

Drop Your Pants is ranked 222,536th in the world and 22nd in Ireland for Most Primitive, scoring -515.91 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
