The People's Republic of Schezlandia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its digital currency, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 652 million Schezlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charity. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Schezlandian economy, worth 45.4 trillion Saucos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,580 Saucos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, recognizing the Schezlandian flag qualifies you for citizenship, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, and white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Schezlandia's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Schezlandia is ranked 211,949th in the world and 1,202nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.55 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
