The Greater Mapletia Union of Mapletish is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Wiston Walash with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.463 billion Mapletians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Struggait. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Maplish economy, worth a remarkable 2,832 trillion Mapletish Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 210,409 Mapletish Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 635,024 per year while the poor average 54,317, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels, and t-shirts displaying a photo of President Wiston Walash performing the Full-Monty are selling out. Crime is totally unknown. Mapletish's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Faith.

Mapletish is ranked 108,863rd in the world and 30th in Rushmore for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,128.86 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
