The Armed Republic of Mat She is a huge, safe nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 328 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mat She City. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Mat Shean economy, worth 18.7 trillion She Mats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,877 She Mats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Friendly Neighborhood AC-130 Gunshipball fields, and old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime. 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 24,133rd in the world and 389th in 10000 Islands for Longest Average Lifespans, with 88.36 Years.
