The Socialist Confederation of Mechanist Combine is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.624 billion Mechanists are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mechanis. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mechanist economy, worth 316 trillion Federation Credits 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. Average income is an impressive 120,756 Federation Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, and the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mechanist Combine's national animal is the Velociraptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mechanist Combine is ranked 171,739th in the world and 202nd in Wintreath for Best Weather, with -2 Meters Of Sunlight.
