The Republic of Mecsherstein is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aldric Spitz with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.012 billion Mecshersteinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mecshersteinian economy, worth 300 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 149,585 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Where your food came from is an unknowable mystery, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, and soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers. 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 93,106th in the world and 3,073rd in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,138.84 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
