The Simulnation of Matrixulated is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Morpheus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 16.109 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MegaCity. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Matrixulated economy, worth a remarkable 5,266 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 326,914 Megabytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Matrixulated Moonshine", relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 204,732nd in the world and 260th in Spiritus for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -25.3 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
