The United Socialist States of Mechanico is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.832 billion Mechanicoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 63.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Mechanicoan economy, worth 113 trillion diodes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 61,722 diodes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, bronze and marble supplies are running low as sculptors depict full-figured subjects, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mechanico's national animal is the ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
