The Grace and Precision of Maple 26

The Grace and Precision of Maple 26 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.943 billion Maple 26ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 22.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Maple 26ian economy, worth 622 trillion planets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 104,804 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government's economic policy is "sort it yourself", judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, and the government hopes that Federation janitors overhear all of the good gossip. Crime is moderate. Maple 26's national animal is the puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Maple 26 is ranked 253,347th in the world and 9th in Anti Panda for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.51 bananas ingested per day.
