The Megalopolis Corporatocracy of Matofali is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Jacob Sweetwater with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.782 billion Matofalians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tar Rock Arcology 01. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Matofalian economy, worth a remarkable 3,487 trillion Mato Points a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 448,095 Mato Points, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,193,410 per year while the poor average 4,077, a ratio of 1,028 to 1.

Tens of thousands of Matofalians rock the night away at the annual SuperLob, women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, the Small Council has more than a little influence, and Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Matofali's national animal is the Rope Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Corporatism.

Matofali is ranked 52nd in the world and 2nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 99.14 Obesity Rate.
