Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Republic of Matison is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gene Masseth with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.339 billion Matisonians 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 tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matison City. The average income tax rate is 2.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Matisonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,245 trillion farks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 146,417 farks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Matison's national animal is the LOLcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Matison is ranked 3rd in 42 Douglas Adams and 12,523rd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
