The Republic of Maple Islands is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by democratically elected government with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.375 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 large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liberty. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Maple Islandsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,846 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 234,924 Loonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and the comic book series 'Democratically elected government and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. 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 1,927th in the world and 8th in Canada for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 9,878.93 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
