The Free State of The Republic of Mattlandia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Andrew Simons with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.054 billion, 1.291 billion of whom are zombies, Mattlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing industries.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 232nd in British Isles and 104,641st in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

The Republic of Mattlandia is currently researching a cure.
