The Commonwealth of Mechanica Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Adrien II with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.543 billion Mechanica Empireans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rose City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Mechanica Empirean economy, worth 620 trillion Mechanica Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 243,844 Mechanica Pound Sterlings, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,339,341 per year while the poor average 22,564, a ratio of 59.4 to 1.

The government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, war criminals are given full state funerals, and a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mechanica Empire's national animal is the Great Auk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Mechanica Empire is ranked 252,299th in the world and 146th in Lands End for Most Avoided, scoring 0.93 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
