The United Kingdom of Maplen is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alexander Herbert III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 3.602 billion Maplenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portland. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Maplish economy, worth 505 trillion Dollens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,234 Dollens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Factories place endangered birds in their rafters in pursuit of government protections, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, and foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Maplen will pay them to stop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maplen's national animal is the Pit Bull Terrier Mix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.
