The Grand Duchy of Mechashadow is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Archduke Bolt Gigastein with a fair hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.222 billion Mechashadowians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 4,095th in the world for Largest Populations, with 15,222 Capita (millions).
