The Kaiserreich of Sherlock Holmes federation is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Friedrich Wilhelm I with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.743 billion Sherlock Holmes federationians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baker Street. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The very strong Sherlock Holmes federationian economy, worth 111 trillion Shields a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 64,240 Shields, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 225,247 per year while the poor average 13,295, a ratio of 16.9 to 1.

Sherlock Holmes federation's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, Kaiser Friedrich Wilhelm I has just been declared ruler of Sherlock Holmes federation in an international press conference, medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, and Orthodox Christian has been named as Sherlock Holmes federation's national religion. Crime is moderate. Sherlock Holmes federation's national animal is the Baskerville hound, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Orthodox Christian.

Sherlock Holmes federation is ranked 29,859th in the world and 2nd in The tea for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 58,138.09 Standard Monetary Units.
