The United Provinces of Mathorn is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Sam White with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.585 billion Mathornians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polaris. The average income tax rate is 25.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mathornian economy, worth a remarkable 3,118 trillion Mathorcs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 269,218 Mathorcs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, President Sam White's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime is totally unknown. Mathorn's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mathorn is ranked 14,862nd in the world and 7th in CISB for Largest Governments, scoring 29.33 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
