The Kingdom of Matolne is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Mtol III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and lack of airports. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.936 billion Matols are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mtol city. The average income tax rate is 74.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Matolnean economy, worth 590 trillion Mtols a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,607 Mtols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, therapists advise women who are constantly stressed and tired to have another baby, and priests are being drafted by the church load. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matolne's national animal is the Patyczak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mtolmizm.

Matolne is ranked 180,286th in the world and 9,555th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 7.44 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
