The United Socialist States of Matthewstownville is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Matthew Matthews with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.898 billion Matthewstownvilleans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prifddinas Trelyn. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Matthewstownvillean economy, worth 544 trillion Punts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,675 Punts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Prifddinas Trelyn, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. Crime is totally unknown. Matthewstownville's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Matthewstownville is ranked 165,923rd in the world and 36th in Hippy Haven for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -10.77 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
