The Free State of The Republic of Mattlandia is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Andrew Simons with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.24 billion Mattlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyrisonia. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Book Publishing.

Government officials across The Republic of Mattlandia are being "encouraged" to adopt Animal Crackers to set an example for the populace, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime is totally unknown. The Republic of Mattlandia's national animal is the Animal Cracker, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is mixed, and its currency is the Pound sterling.

The Republic of Mattlandia is ranked 222nd in British Isles and 114,516th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring -12 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
