The Socialist Republic of Sterling-Charcot pronounced [stərliːŋ tʃɑːrkɔːt]) (also known as SRSC or Sterling-Charcot) is a constituent republic of the Federation of Secundomian Socialist Republics.

Etymology

Sterling-Charcot is named after the Kingdom of Sterling and Charcot Island, the older micronational kingdom and the island that constitutes the republic. In turn, the Kingdom was named for the boy's name meaning "genuine" or of "high quality," also for the Sterling grade of silver. This was chosen by Parker I to represent the Kingdom's high worth. Charcot Island is named by Jean-Baptiste Charcot to honor his father Jean-Martin Charcot. However, like Gravois, the name of the republic is pronounced in a corrupted American accent as [tʃɑːrkɔːt] rather than the original French [ʃaʁko].
