The Republic of Mecsherstein is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aldric Spitz with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.102 billion Mecshersteinians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uvan. The average income tax rate is 63.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mecshersteinian economy, worth 122 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,117 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and police aim to defeat hatred with love with their "hugs-for-thugs" program. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mecsherstein's national animal is the Golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mecsherstein is ranked 18,843rd in the world and 638th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 62.83 Atheism Rate.
