The Disputed Territories of Schala is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Princess with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 18.146 billion Schalans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Royal Slave Dungeon. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Enslaved economy, worth a remarkable 6,720 trillion Whips 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 Tourism. Average income is an amazing 370,383 Whips, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, the only things written in the stars are arrest warrants for astrologers, and royals are always ready with their diamond-encrusted toilet plungers in case a royal flush doesn't work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Schala's national animal is the sparkle pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Obedience.

Schala is ranked 324th in the world and 1st in The Slave Guilds for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 16,299.55 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
