Maple 6

Population6.365 billion


The Grace and Precision of Maple 6 is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 6.365 billion Maple 6ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maple 6ian economy, worth 638 trillion planets a year, is highly specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,308 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Many Maple 6ians twitch nervously at the sight of nuns, Maple 6ians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and students who refuse to pray are expelled from school. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maple 6's national animal is the puffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Maple 6 is ranked 221,572nd in the world and 8th in Irish Free State for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -9 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
