The Second Aftokratoria of The Mekhanite Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Builder Robert Bumaro with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.278 billion Mekhanites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kythera. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Mekhanite economy, worth 134 trillion Drachmas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,506 Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Drachma battlesuits, and huge explosions in the sky are a daily occurrence in the cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Mekhanite Empire's national animal is the Colossus, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Mekhanism.

The Mekhanite Empire is ranked 36,911th in the world and 1,038th in the Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,153.18 Tourists Per Hour.
