The Armed Republic of Mat She is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 168 million Mat Sheans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mat Shean economy, worth 9.04 trillion She Mats a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,826 She Mats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, the Mat Shean war navy contains an oddly large number of luxury yachts and cruise liners, gay hospital patients are labelled with a pink triangle to alert staff of their substandard blood, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mat She's national animal is the Friendly Neighborhood AC-130 Gunship, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mat She is ranked 162,665th in the world and 1,600th in 10000 Islands for Most Devout, with 9.5 Prayers Per Hour.
