Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Matahari is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sathyanegara with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.789 billion Mataharians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suryakarta. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The thriving Mataharian economy, worth 734 trillion Tharis a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 126,882 Tharis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, Max Barry is this year's Miss Matahari, and the nation refuses to provide international aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matahari's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Matahari is ranked 151,302nd in the world and 6,473rd in the Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 5.77 Whatever.
