The Republic of Maple Islands is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by democratically elected government with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.494 billion Maple Islanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liberty. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Maple Islandsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,838 trillion Loonies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 227,219 Loonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime is totally unknown. Maple Islands's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maple Islands is ranked 176,136th in the world and 149th in Canada for Most Authoritarian, with 356.64 milliStalins.
