The Queen's State of Schlechtes is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 26.105 billion Schlechtesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 10.3%.

The very strong Schlechtesian economy, worth 970 trillion betales a year, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 37,180 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, all tariffs have been abolished, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the government is avowedly atheist. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Schlechtes's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Schlechtes is ranked 174,561st in the world and 8th in The Philippines for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.35 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
