The Mechanocracy of Blakullar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by OTAN with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.044 billion Mecharussians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunikagrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but inefficient Mecharussian economy, worth a remarkable 3,085 trillion new roubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 146,619 new roubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, in a fit of passion OTAN has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, soldiers are equipped with multi-million new rouble battlesuits, and tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Blakullar's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Beating Up People Who Are Religious.

Blakullar is ranked 2,167th in the world and 1st in Butthole Raptor Jesus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 748.91 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
