The Golden Period of Mechanocs is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ivo Kroeger with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.612 billion Mechanocsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kraken's Hold. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Mechanocsian economy, worth 222 trillion Uni Sultans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,027 Uni Sultans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, notable individuals are granted land and titles, citizens are required to report any and all incidents of prayer to their local Religious Affairs Officer, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mechanocs's national animal is the Magna Bove, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imperial Credence.

Mechanocs is ranked 39,608th in the world and 1,616th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,280.34 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
