The Federal Republic of Maplestan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Rudolf Ahorn with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and lack of airports. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.996 billion Maplestanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maple Hill. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Maplestanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,886 trillion Puffins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 259,167 Puffins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maplestan's national animal is the pixie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Maplestan is ranked 140,242nd in the world and 37th in Pax Britannia for Most Pro-Market, scoring -65.44 on the Rand Index.
