The Democratic Republic of Matioria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maylen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.294 billion Matiorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Myrao. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Matiorian economy, worth 623 trillion Maloes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 60,603 Maloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious education is a new government priority, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matioria's national animal is the Starling, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unitarianism.

Matioria is ranked 126,779th in the world and 6,400th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -122.85 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
