The Dominion of Mechani-Kong is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mechani-Kong with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.062 billion Mechani-Kongians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Mechani-Kongian economy, worth 263 trillion yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 128,010 yen, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 598,875 per year while the poor average 16,346, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

Soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mechani-Kong's national animal is the gorilla, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Technology.

Mechani-Kong is ranked 67,881st in the world and 5th in The Planet X for Nudest, with 165.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
