The Grand Duchy of Mechashadow is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Archduke Bolt Gigastein with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 15.038 billion 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.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, protests are legal but strictly supervised, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. 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 1,206th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 232 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
