The Rising Power of Mechanocs is a huge, genial nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 724 million Mechanocsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kraken's Hold. The average income tax rate is 65.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mechanocsian economy, worth 57.2 trillion Uni Sultans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,039 Uni Sultans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, all recreational drugs are legal, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. 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.

Mechanocs is ranked 18,511th in the world and 596th in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 76.29 Years.
