The Second Grand Republic of Mattalania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Chellburg with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.027 billion Mattistanians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osettwich. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mattalanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,492 trillion Mattalanian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 212,367 Mattalanian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, Prime Minister Chellburg has been nicknamed 'Robomop', a light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, and weather reports simply advise Mattistanians to 'look outside'. Crime is totally unknown. Mattalania's national animal is the Desert Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mattalanity.

Mattalania is ranked 2,947th in the world and 67th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.46 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
