The Troutskyist Monarchy of Matallian Aaland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Troutmaster Métécos with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.636 billion Matal-Aalanders are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gardo'Ren-Trouthorpe. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Matal-Aalandic economy, worth 415 trillion Trout a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,260 Trout, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police aim to defeat hatred with love with their "hugs-for-thugs" program, parents who fail mandatory parenting classes risk having their children taken away, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matallian Aaland's national animal is the Squidney, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Marto-Troutskyism.

Matallian Aaland is ranked 238,845th in the world and 5th in mardwellburg for Most Armed, with 0.14 Weapons Per Person.
