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 remarkable for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, humorless population of 18.063 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 Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mechashadow City. The average income tax rate is 1.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but underdeveloped Mechashadowian economy, worth a remarkable 1,353 trillion gear credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,958 gear credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, and vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television. Crime is totally unknown. Mechashadow's national animal is the Barrel Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mechashadow is ranked 1st in Darksteel Geargia and 9,591st in the world for Safest, scoring 665.671 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
