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 keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.702 billion Mattlandians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

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 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Book Publishing.

Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Animal Crackerdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, and a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision. 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 217th in British Isles and 109,220th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -86.8 Insults Per Minute (net).
