The Unincorporated Community of West Mattasia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by some random bureaucrat with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18.109 billion West Mattasians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Social Policy and Industry also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mattropolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient West Mattasian economy, worth a remarkable 4,823 trillion booster packs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 266,385 booster packs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,162,250 per year while the poor average 38,580, a ratio of 30.1 to 1.

The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, Some random bureaucrat is spearheading a new fashion trend of wearing swimming goggles and medieval armour, half of West Mattasia just lost MyFace after space debris collided with a major communications satellite, and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. West Mattasia's national animal is the yellowtail, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Not-My-Problemism.

West Mattasia is ranked 152,591st in the world and 6,219th in Osiris for Most Devout, with 5.23 Prayers Per Hour.
