|Leader||The Bus Driver|
The Allied States of ShortBusCrashed is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Bus Driver with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.819 billion ShortBusCrashedians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, 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 2.8%.
The frighteningly efficient ShortBusCrashedian economy, worth a remarkable 1,149 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 146,983 Lunchboxes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 455,239 per year while the poor average 36,562, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.
The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, government officials raid public buildings to remove all mention of G*d or r******n, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, and politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return. Crime is totally unknown. ShortBusCrashed's national animal is the Furby, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
