The Simulnation of Matrixulated is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Morpheus with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.44 billion Simulacra hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MegaCity. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Matrixulated economy, worth a remarkable 3,900 trillion Megabytes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 290,249 Megabytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

There's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, and coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops. Crime is totally unknown. Matrixulated's national animal is the Code Raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Consensual Hallucination of the Matrix.

Matrixulated is ranked 29,894th in the world and 48th in Spiritus for Most Extreme, scoring 29.36 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
