The Unwavering Integrity of Maple 10 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.577 billion Maple 10ians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 18.9%.

The thriving Maple 10ian economy, worth 104 trillion planets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,232 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, census workers are having a hard time figuring out who is actually living in Maple 10 after the ban on emigration was lifted, eight-year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement, and a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maple 10's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Maple 10 is ranked 101,744th in the world and 3,292nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Income Equality, scoring 27.33 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
