The United Provinces of Mathorn is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Sam White with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.16 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 4.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mathornian economy, worth a remarkable 2,698 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 265,575 Mathorcs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, nine out of ten citizens of Mathorn answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, bars are packed at all hours, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mathorn's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mathorn is ranked 5,083rd in the world and 3rd in CISB for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 131.51 on the Hayek Index.
