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 ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.802 billion Scherzingerians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scherzingerian economy, worth 457 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 163,282 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists are duped into trimming hedges for the horsy-set, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. 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 163,722nd in the world and 602nd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.62 Crimes Per Hour.
