The Socialist Federations of Schrebia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lobanov Sergeyevich with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.228 billion Schrebians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Üppigesdorf. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Schrebian economy, worth 135 trillion Volkkasses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 110,153 Volkkasses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stews often contain used tissues and pocket fluff, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Schrebia's national animal is the Rein Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secular.

Schrebia is ranked 45,860th in the world and 1,879th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
