The Queendom of Matdor is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Loresix IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.203 billion Matdorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swellotchka. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Matdorian economy, worth 116 trillion anixes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 96,900 anixes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, Queen Loresix IV has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, and the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matdor's national animal is the penguin and its national religion is Atheism.

Matdor is ranked 29,136th in the world and 1,275th in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 62.28 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
