Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy of Mechashadow is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Archduke Bolt Gigastein with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 19.42 billion Mechashadowians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mechashadow City. The average income tax rate is 3.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Mechashadowian economy, worth a remarkable 3,050 trillion gear credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,082 gear credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. Crime is totally unknown. Mechashadow's national animal is the Barrel Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mechashadow is ranked 100,995th in the world and 1st in Darksteel Geargia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 30.67 on the Rand Index.
