The Simulnation of Matrixulated is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Morpheus with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 14.933 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, although Industry, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MegaCity. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Matrixulated economy, worth a remarkable 4,761 trillion Megabytes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 318,845 Megabytes, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, nude art is becoming wildly popular, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and pet rocks are sold by the pound. 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 150,934th in the world and 148th in Spiritus for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 11,478.45 Standard Monetary Units.
