The Republic of Mecsherstein is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aldric Spitz with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The democratic population of 3.919 billion Mecshersteinians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uvan. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mecshersteinian economy, worth 641 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,681 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Golden Eagle Dung" has been declared a national treasure, news headlines suggest that Aldric Spitz has a sideline in guinea pig pimping, sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, and a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal. 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 252,315th in the world and 9,630th in The East Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -11.14 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
