Matthew the Man

Population2.634 billion



The Root of All Evil of Matthew the Man is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Matt with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion and suspicion of poets. The hard-working population of 2.634 billion Matthew the Manians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mattopolis. The average income tax rate is 21.9%.

The Matthew the Manian economy, worth 132 trillion Things a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,411 Things, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation. Crime is almost non-existent. Matthew the Man's national animal is the Matthew, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Matt.

Matthew the Man is ranked 136,061st in the world and 151st in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 331.46 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
