The Digital Dreamworld of Matrixulated Reloaded is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Code Angel with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.868 billion Code Angels 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 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. The average income tax rate is 57.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Codestream economy, worth a remarkable 1,625 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 333,824 Bytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Centuries-old legal documents detailing agnatic-cognatic gavelkind succession are being dusted off again, parking's carefree without parking car fees, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, and judges who serve for life or good behavior can expect to stay for a week. Crime is totally unknown. Matrixulated Reloaded's national animal is the Demure Alekseandrea, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Codestream.

Matrixulated Reloaded is ranked 195,630th in the world and 254th in Spiritus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -43.35 on the Hayek Index.
