The Nomadic Tribes of Arctic Mattasia is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chief Nako the Seal-Basher with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 837 million Derekans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mimbaruu. The average income tax rate is 34.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Arctic Mattasian economy, worth 79.8 trillion pelts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Gambling, Retail, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 95,290 pelts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Diaper sales are up, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, the army's trophy cabinets have gone all-organic, and economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Arctic Mattasia's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arctic Mattasia is ranked 4,853rd in the world and 13th in Wintreath for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 10,082.92 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
