This man is now Chancellor of Germany, and there's no telling if it will be awesome.

It's Germany, "awesome" is outside their emotional range.

Scholz is from Hamburg, which makes him a German Northerner. They tend to keep to themselves more, and aren't known for emotional outbursts. Bavarians and Swabians down in the south are much more lively folk, by contrast.

Merkel was also a Northerner. Mecklenburg state, IIRC.

I've heard some funny stories about Swabians. The "sausage incident" at a Mercedes shareholder event was possibly the most Swabian thing to happen outside the area.

Merkel was also born in Hamburg, interestingly enough. Her father was a Protestant pastor who then emigrated to East Germany with the whole family in the 1950s. Which was a bit of an odd thing to do. Only a handful of West German citizens every year chose to move to communist East Germany. For obvious reasons.
