Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Matison is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gene Masseth with a fair hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 19.189 billion Matisonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Defense is also considered important, 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 1.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Matisonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,814 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 146,681 farks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, according to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color, Gene Masseth's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Matison's national animal is the LOLcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Matison is ranked 174,756th in the world and 9th in 42 Douglas Adams for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -13.78 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
