The Cultural Democracy of Schrack is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the nation's film industry with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.52 billion Schracks hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Villa. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Schrack economy, worth 184 trillion scripts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 121,350 scripts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It is well recognised that you can't sustain communism without a bit of spirit, prison visits increase substantially during election years, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Schrack's national animal is the beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Schrack is ranked 228,167th in the world and 8th in Dexter for Fattest Citizens, with 6.94 Obesity Rate.
