The Corporate States of Matta is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Rayi Ivan Cowden with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.646 billion Mattans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Public Transport aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Craos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Mattan economy, worth 921 trillion Shillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 163,287 Shillings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 728,260 per year while the poor average 22,746, a ratio of 32.0 to 1.

An increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, the nation's arms dealers guarantee discretion and untraceable transactions, and centuries-old marble buildings are being torn down and replaced with corrugated steel wind tunnels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matta's national animal is the Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Euclidicism.

Matta is ranked 11,501st in the world and 3rd in Regionless for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,723.16 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
