The Consolidated Technocracy of Matonis is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by First Administrator with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.249 billion Matonisans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Insight Academy. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Matonisan economy, worth a remarkable 2,040 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 326,490 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters remind people that 'Hoarding Mushrooms Is Theft', they who do not work shall not eat, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, and all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matonis's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Matonis is ranked 384th in the world and 2nd in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most Developed, scoring 98.96 on the Human Development Index.
