Matt Laand

Population827 million


The Colony of Matt Laand is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The quiet, industrious population of 827 million Matt Laandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 24.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Matt Laandian economy, worth 35.4 trillion Maties a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,788 Maties, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matt Laand's national animal is the Matt, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Matt Laand is ranked 93,709th in the world and 19th in The Monarchy alliance for Most Pro-Market, scoring 43.29 on the Rand Index.
