Template:Infobox Nation V1 (Nex)The United European Mechanocracy, officially known as the United People's Mechanocratic European Commune is a totalitarian mechanocratic state encompassing most of continental Europe, excluding the holdings of the Russian Mechanocracy. It also lays claim to but exercises no control over the British Isles, Iceland and Greenland as well as a number of smaller islands that were occupied by various Frenkish-aligned nations during the European Civil War.
Established in early 2153 following a suspiciously well-equipped Mechanocratic revolution in the Czech Republic that quickly spread to Bavaria and much of Eastern Europe before expanding through the rest of the Federation, the resulting European Civil War of which resulted in the dissolution of the European Federation and independence of Great Britain, it is ruled by General Secretary Karel Anděl, former political prisoner and mechanocratic revolutionary.
It is often considered merely a puppet state of the Russian Mechanocracy by western people, owed to the fact that it required extensive support from its massive Eastern neighbor to survive during the civil war, ironically mirroring the sentiment most Eastern people have when looking back at the now defunct European Federation and the Frenkish Empire.
The United European Mechanocracy's roots lie in the now defunct European Federation of the Post-War era, owing its existence to an organized uprising of various Mechanocratic, Neo-Stalinist and anti-Frenkish revolutionaries, partisans and assorted paramilitary organizations, most of which had been subjected to brutal Federal crackdowns due to alleged collaboration with as well as espionage and sabotage for the Russian Mechanocracy during the Second Russo-European War.
Karel Anděl, then imprisoned prominent member of the Czechoslovak Mechanocratic State Party became the overall leading figure of the Mechanocratic elements in European society after a daring mass escape from Landsberg Prison that left most of the correctional facility in ruins, ending his twenty year imprisonment.
Fearing a full-scale uprising in the Czech and Slovakian Republics (rightly so) if he managed to return there, the Federation declared martial law over the two states, quickly dissolving civilian governance, enforcing curfews and raiding homes of suspected sympathizers in the hopes of finding clues as to his whereabouts.
Predictably, this set off exactly the revolution they desired to crush in its infancy.
