The Federal Republic of Schegalex is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 894 million Schegalexians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The very strong Schegalexian economy, worth 61.8 trillion pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 69,121 pesos, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

The path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, the government is spending millions on lawyers' fees trying to get Leader off a murder charge, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Schegalex's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Schegalex is ranked 48,522nd in the world and 1,700th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,287.6 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
