The Digital Dreamworld of Matrixulated Reloaded is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Architect with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.854 billion Code Angels enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Source. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Codestream economy, worth 715 trillion Bytes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 250,633 Bytes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 707,484 per year while the poor average 71,075, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, much of Matrixulated Reloaded's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and online tourism reviews of Matrixulated Reloaded are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar. Crime is totally unknown. Matrixulated Reloaded's national animal is the Demure Alekseandrea, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Codestream.

Matrixulated Reloaded is ranked 9,661st in the world and 20th in Spiritus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,985.58 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
