Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Republic of Matison is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gene Masseth with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, strictly enforced bedtime, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.41 billion Matisonians 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 tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matison City. The average income tax rate is 3.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Matisonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,622 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 150,634 farks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, being impolite in public is punishable by heavy fines, and Tourism facilities are being turned into LOLcat habitats. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Matison's national animal is the LOLcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Matison is ranked 11th in 42 Douglas Adams and 135,901st in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring -13.293 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
