The Empire of Scherzinger is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Erwin Agustus Sacschen von Zenzefer III with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.226 billion Scherzingerians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, 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 91.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Scherzingerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,193 trillion Deutsche Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 191,703 Deutsche Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, everybody's got wood thanks to Erwin Agustus Sacschen von Zenzefer III, and there's a bright dawn ahead for Scherzinger. 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 204,391st in the world and 113th in New West Indies for Least Corrupt Governments, with 29.15 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
