The Vasilist Imperial Empire of Matterio is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by General Sovereign Ivan Vasiliev with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, devout population of 1.931 billion Matterians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stalingrad. The average income tax rate is 89.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Matterian economy, worth 283 trillion Matterian rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 147,039 Matterian rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, most towns have their General Sovereign Ivan Vasiliev High School located on General Sovereign Ivan Vasiliev Street, protests are legal but strictly supervised, and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matterio's national animal is the brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vasilism.

Matterio is ranked 48,340th in the world and 23rd in The Great Red Union for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 171,176.98 Standard Monetary Units.
