The Free State of The Republic of Mattlandia is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Andrew Simons with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.018 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 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.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. 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 13th in British Isles and 4,826th in the world for Best Weather, with 196 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
