The Free State of The Republic of Mattlandia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Andrew Simons with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.502 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Commerce and Social Equality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyrisonia. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, organ donation is compulsory, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. 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 216th in British Isles and 110,708th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -22 on the Hayek Index.
