OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Duchy of Mechashadow is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Archduke Bolt Gigastein with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 15.817 billion Mechashadowians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mechashadow City. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Mechashadowian economy, worth a remarkable 3,537 trillion gear credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 223,680 gear credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Meat-eating is frowned upon, graffiti graces every city's streets, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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.

Mechashadow is ranked 1st in Darksteel Geargia and 674th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 209 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
