The Volksrijk of Matsrakia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Alkrion Van Harlem with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed population of 992 million Matsarks have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Matsrakian economy, worth 134 trillion $LMDs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 135,720 $LMDs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, and the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matsrakia's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Matsrakia is ranked 177,908th in the world and 51st in United Alliance for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.44 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
