The Codestream of Matrixulated Reloaded is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Code Angel with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.14 billion Code Angels enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Source. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Codestream economy, worth a remarkable 2,199 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 358,182 Bytes, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Codestream satellites can detect it, Code Angel can be seen doing doughnuts in a new Rambogini, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, and children often kick Demure Alekseandreas for amusement. 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 897th in the world and 4th in Spiritus for Most Secular, with 99.14 Atheism Rate.
