The Automated Socialist States of Mechanico is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Byt with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.84 billion Mechanicoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mechanica. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mechanicoan economy, worth 499 trillion diodes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,135 diodes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, and the military has gone fission for more funding. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mechanico's national animal is the ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mechanico is ranked 12,045th in the world and 390th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,883.54 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
