Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Variable Attention Span of Schotze is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 19.957 billion Schotzeans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 44.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Schotzean economy, worth 760 trillion Rockies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,131 Rockies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, the latest drugs are only legally available to private patients, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Schotze's national animal is the Buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Schotze is ranked 10th in Q102 and 100,291st in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 10 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
