The Republic of Mecsherstein is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Aldric Spitz with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 808 million Mecshersteinians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uvan. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mecshersteinian economy, worth 86.7 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,296 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese, Aldric Spitz's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mecsherstein's national animal is the Golden eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mecsherstein is ranked 118,611th in the world and 3,829th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 772 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
