The Technarchy of Mechanian is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by PAMA with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.197 billion Mechanians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Crown Mesa. The average income tax rate is 9.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Mechanian economy, worth 693 trillion Redstone Chips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 165,158 Redstone Chips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals are thrown to the Cyber-Eagles to repay their debt to society, money is being desperately pumped into the ruined economy, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and destitute AIs lurk around online bulletin boards begging for spare Redstone Chips. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Mechanian's national animal is the Cyber-Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Mechanian is ranked 148,242nd in the world and 28th in Galactic Wars for Most Pacifist, with 5.1 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
