The Disputed Territories of Sherlockazulu is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 38.621 billion Sherlockazuluans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sherlockazuluan economy, worth a remarkable 5,670 trillion zubles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 146,831 zubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 614,900 per year while the poor average 22,828, a ratio of 26.9 to 1.

Nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sherlockazulu's national animal is the vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sherlockazulu is ranked 53,234th in the world and 144th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,574.54 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
