The Simulnation of Matrixulated is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Morpheus with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 17.612 billion Simulacra hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MegaCity. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Matrixulated economy, worth a remarkable 5,867 trillion Megabytes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 333,158 Megabytes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. Crime is totally unknown. Matrixulated's national animal is the Code Raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Consensual Hallucination of the Matrix.

Matrixulated is ranked 203,343rd in the world and 237th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.2 Weapons Per Person.
