The Allied States of The Schmitz is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 285 million Schmitzians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 14.9%.

The very strong Schmitzian economy, worth 24.1 trillion waffles from waffle houses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 84,651 waffles from waffle houses, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and Leader has returned as a hero from a brutal campaign to conquer the local beach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Schmitz's national animal is the homeboi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Schmitz is ranked 34,399th in the world and 1st in Franavia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,055.35 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
