Adept mechanicus

Population356 million



The Holy Empire of Adept mechanicus is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 356 million Adept mechanicusians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metalicus. The average income tax rate is 45.5%.

The strong Adept mechanicusian economy, worth 24.3 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 68,164 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, 90% of active duty AMAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and Adept mechanicus has designated Metalicus as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Adept mechanicus's national animal is the Toaster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Adept mechanicus is ranked 95,708th in the world and 8th in Warhammer 40000 for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.19 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
