The Free State of The Republic of Mattlandia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Andrew Simons with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.888 billion 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 concentrates mainly on Education, although Commerce and Social Equality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyrisonia. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing industries.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. 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 10th in British Isles and 2,392nd in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 155 Dawkins.
