LeaderErwin Agustus Sacschen von Zenzefer III


The Empire of Scherzinger is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Erwin Agustus Sacschen von Zenzefer III with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.469 billion Scherzingerians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ShangXiang. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scherzingerian economy, worth 398 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 161,331 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women who display their ankles are shunned by society, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours, and children often kick Vultures for amusement. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scherzinger's national animal is the Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Scherzinger is ranked 94,706th in the world and 369th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 468.66 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
