The Liberated of Matism is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hank Scorpio with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.765 billion Free People 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 enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Globex. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Matismian economy, worth a remarkable 1,021 trillion Scorpios a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,602 Scorpios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, Globex is a police state during international summits, and the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matism's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Matism is ranked 145,421st in the world and 1,102nd in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 152 billion Standard Monetary Units.
