Maple 24

Population5.856 billion


The Grace and Precision of Maple 24 is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its fear of technology, parental licensing program, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.856 billion Maple 24ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 38.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maple 24ian economy, worth 592 trillion planets a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,241 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The education system is famed for its taxing exams, the government is reining in public spending, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless, and cops shout apologies with every swing of their baton. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maple 24's national animal is the puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Maple 24 is ranked 170,576th in the world and 2nd in Puppets Anonymous for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.57 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
