The Community of Matrixulated Reloaded is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Architect with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 967 million Code Angels are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Source. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Codestream economy, worth 122 trillion Bytes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 126,377 Bytes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 451,819 per year while the poor average 25,385, a ratio of 17.8 to 1.

The Source's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Matrixulated Reloaded's national animal is the Demure Alekseandrea, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Matrixulated Reloaded is ranked 39,426th in the world and 74th in Spiritus for Highest Crime Rates, with 10.75 Crimes Per Hour.
