Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy of Mechashadow is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Archduke Bolt Gigastein with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate population of 18.555 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 2.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but underdeveloped Mechashadowian economy, worth a remarkable 1,394 trillion gear credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 75,134 gear credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Mechashadow Blood Tithe, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. 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 169,675th in the world and 1st in Darksteel Geargia for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 292.5 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
