Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand Duchy of Mechashadow is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Archduke Bolt Gigastein with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 17.08 billion Mechashadowians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The minute, socially-minded government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Environment, Social Policy, and International Aid. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mechashadow City. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but underdeveloped Mechashadowian economy, worth a remarkable 1,296 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 75,906 gear credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, the government is almost completely paralyzed by the recent abolishment of the tax code, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts. Crime is totally unknown. Mechashadow's national animal is the Barrel Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Mechashadow is ranked 1st in Darksteel Geargia and 3,854th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 523 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
