The Grizzly Sheep of Drop Your Pants is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Shepard with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 30.622 billion Sheep are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheeptropolis. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sheepish economy, worth a remarkable 5,330 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. 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 impressive 174,071 Dali's Patiences, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, every workday begins with group therapy, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 45,034th in the world and 6th in Ireland for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,397.52 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
