The Friendly Nation of Matroyska is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.323 billion Matroyskans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North South Upper Downford. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Matroyskan economy, worth 329 trillion balls a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,296 balls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Theoretical science is only theoretical, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matroyska's national animal is the tiny horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Matroyska is ranked 16,091st in the world and 7th in The Democratic Republic of Freedom for Most Developed, scoring 79.58 on the Human Development Index.
