The The Grand Duchy of Matsrakia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexei Andropov with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed population of 3.717 billion Matsarks are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Matsrakian economy, worth 662 trillion $LMDs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,142 $LMDs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, and chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Amsterdam's playgrounds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matsrakia's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholic.

Matsrakia is ranked 121,303rd in the world and 1st in The Chronicles of Karhvandia for Most Average, scoring 37.57 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
