The Allied States of ShortBusCrashed is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Bus Driver with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.037 billion ShortBusCrashedians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Safety Helmet. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.
The all-consuming ShortBusCrashedian economy, worth 837 trillion Lunchboxes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,798 Lunchboxes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 442,173 per year while the poor average 33,146, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.
Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, fighter pilots crash out of the air after failing to understand their foreign instruction manuals, and telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm. Crime is totally unknown. ShortBusCrashed's national animal is the Furby, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
