The Simulnation of Matrixulated is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Morpheus with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 17.749 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, although Industry, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MegaCity. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Matrixulated economy, worth a remarkable 5,939 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 334,634 Megabytes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, government agents stalk the aisles of grocery stores for out-of-stock medications, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and crime is on the rise as online youths compete to vlog the most shocking scenes of violence. 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 1,571st in the world and 9th in Spiritus for Most Developed, scoring 97.99 on the Human Development Index.
