|“||Where everyone fits in.||”|
|— Town slogan|

The town is the primary setting of the television series of the same name.

Schitt's Creek is town (Moira once called it a "hamlet") of quaint surroundings and very few businesses and places of interest, the most prominent of them, Bob's Garage, Café Tropical, and Rose Apothecary being located along on a wide Main Street. Beyond the Main Street the other businesses shown are the Town Hall, Ted's Veterinary Clinic, and the Rosebud Motel. The town is 4,500 acres, most of it being open fields and shady wooded areas.
The town is shown to be the home to largely unsophisticated, but honest, down-to-Earth, and hard working people who are always eager to give a helping hand, or a happy smile to anyone in need, especially the Rose Family. It is also interesting to note the townsfolk not showing expressions of homophobia to David's sexuality, instead simply accepting it.

The town of Schitt's Creek is governed by a Mayor and a small Town Council. Together, the duel government bodies work closely to sort out and solve problems in the town. They are also responsible for calling frequent town meetings.
The Council and Mayor offices are located in the Schitt's Creek Town Hall, which was incorporated in 1895.
By following an old Schitt's Creek saying that goes, "Who needs elections when you can keep having sons?", the town has been led by the Schitt family for generations; the first mayor being founder Horace Schitt and the current mayor being Roland Schitt.
