The Ultimate Remixed Empire of Matamorosia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kīng Пokoyo Sīka with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.436 billion Matamorosiani 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Matamoros. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Matamorosianic economy, worth 397 trillion Matamorosian Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,195 Matamorosian Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, prisoners have been known to host cooking and home décor television shows, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matamorosia's national animal is the Polandball, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Matamotosianicalamineicaolavjok Catholic.

Matamorosia is ranked 212,972nd in the world and 755th in United Kingdom for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3.35 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
