|Leader||The Bus Driver|
The Allied States of ShortBusCrashed is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Bus Driver with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.976 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 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 999 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 Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,334 Lunchboxes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 421,189 per year while the poor average 38,428, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.
CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, for just a few extra Lunchboxes ShortBusCrashedians can get new driving records with their new cars, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one. Crime is totally unknown. ShortBusCrashed's national animal is the Furby, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
