The Codestream of Matrixulated Reloaded is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Code Angel with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.285 billion Code Angels enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Source. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Codestream economy, worth a remarkable 2,285 trillion Bytes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 363,652 Bytes, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, the official Codestream Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and it's hunting season on loan sharks. Crime is totally unknown. Matrixulated Reloaded's national animal is the Demure Alekseandrea, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Codestream.

Matrixulated Reloaded is ranked 15,337th in the world and 29th in Spiritus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,891.62 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
