The Star Empire of Mechyrdia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Nicholas III with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.586 billion Mechyrdians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paloudlic Placj. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mechyrdian economy, worth a remarkable 2,533 trillion thrones a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 334,032 thrones, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,981,098 per year while the poor average 25,924, a ratio of 76.4 to 1.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mechyrdia's national animal is the two-headed eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Reformed Tylan Pantheon et alia.

Mechyrdia is ranked 12,547th in the world and 1st in Galactic Hegemony for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,273.04 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
