The Monarchy of Scherzinger is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Erwin Zenzefer III with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.093 billion Scherzingerians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ShangXiang. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Scherzingerian economy, worth a remarkable 2,454 trillion Deutsche Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 221,242 Deutsche Yen, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The Random Number Gods do play dice with the universe (Scherzinger has found 6 easter eggs), the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, families must live in a village for a century before they get any say in how it runs, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scherzinger's national animal is the Koi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Scherzinger is ranked 6,970th in the world and 1st in Kavonia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 530,507 Standard Monetary Units.
