The Digital Dreamworld of Matrixulated Reloaded is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Code Angel with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.417 billion Code Angels are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Source. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Codestream economy, worth 961 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 281,480 Bytes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 819,928 per year while the poor average 76,399, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

Self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, and elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes. 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 3,317th in the world and 9th in Spiritus for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 142,991.89 Standard Monetary Units.
