The Friendly Nation of Matroyska is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.466 billion matroyskans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of north south upper downford. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient matroyskan economy, worth 691 trillion balls a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,969 balls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer balls to support "struggling" industries, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, and inter-species marriages are ignored by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matroyska's national animal is the tiny horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Matroyska is ranked 2,997th in the world and 4th in Lorania for Most Secular, with 98.93 Atheism Rate.
