The Simulnation of Matrixulated is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Morpheus with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 15.97 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, with Industry, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MegaCity. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Matrixulated economy, worth a remarkable 5,199 trillion Megabytes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 325,571 Megabytes, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. 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 204,518th in the world and 294th in Spiritus for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -33 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
