OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Duchy of Mechashadow is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Archduke Bolt Gigastein with a fair hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.565 billion, 5.556 billion of whom are zombies, Mechashadowians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Gambling.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, Mechashadow has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. 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 5,966th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 11 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Mechashadow is currently considering its options.
