The Ultimate Remixed Empire of Matamorosia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Lord Mercator with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.215 billion Matamorosiani have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Matamoros. The average income tax rate is 54.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Matamorosianic economy, worth 140 trillion Matamorosian Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,010 Matamorosian Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, and the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matamorosia's national animal is the Polandball, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Matamotosianicalamine.

Matamorosia is ranked 55,508th in the world and 190th in United Kingdom for Most Beautiful Environments, with 637.45 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
