OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Duchy of Mechashadow is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Archduke Bolt Gigastein with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.835 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 dominated by the Tourism industry.

International tensions are high as Mechashadow threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, the government funds large training centres to turn Barrel Dragons into functioning members of society, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 5,618th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 18 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
