The Grand Duchy of Mechashadow is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Archduke Bolt Gigastein with an even hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. Its compassionate population of 14.101 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mechashadow City. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency, anti-government web sites are springing up, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Barrel Dragon hunting institutions, and fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mechashadow's national animal is the Barrel Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the gear credit.

Mechashadow is ranked 1st in Darksteel Geargia and 112,328th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -11 Whatever.
