Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand Duchy of Mechashadow is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Archduke Bolt Gigastein with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 16.73 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 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Mechashadowian economy, worth a remarkable 3,773 trillion gear credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 225,558 gear credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, Archduke Bolt Gigastein's mistress is the belle at many state balls, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. 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 1,296th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 26 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
