The Queen's State of Schlechtes is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.547 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, with Education, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. The average income tax rate is 10.4%.

The very strong Schlechtesian economy, worth 919 trillion betales a year, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 37,457 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 86,696th in the world and 3rd in The Philippines for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 68.56 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
