The Grand Duchy of Mechashadow is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Archduke Bolt Gigastein with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 22.256 billion Mechashadowians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 4.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mechashadowian economy, worth a remarkable 4,250 trillion gear credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,977 gear credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Archduke Bolt Gigastein's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season. Crime is totally unknown. Mechashadow's national animal is the Barrel Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mechashadow is ranked 2,575th in the world and 1st in Darksteel Geargia for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 85.08 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
