The Cultured Kingdom of Matrino is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by David Anthony Migliorino with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 6.519 billion Matrinoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Etrusca. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Matrinoan economy, worth 948 trillion Supplonas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,421 Supplonas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, parking's carefree without parking car fees, and children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matrino's national animal is the Turkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Matrino is ranked 64,309th in the world and 13th in United Nations UN for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,244.36 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
