The Variable Attention Span of Schotze is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its fear of technology, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 25.555 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 44.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Schotzean economy, worth 968 trillion Rockies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,890 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 the all-pervasive 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 50,529th in the world and 2nd in Q102 for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,386.38 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
