|Leader||His Holy Matness|
The Cool Nation of of Matism is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by His Holy Matness with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.406 billion Matismians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matopolis. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Matismian economy, worth 804 trillion Mints a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 125,645 Mints, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Matism" at foreigners, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Matism's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
