The Grace and Precision of Maple 3

The Grace and Precision of Maple 3 is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.373 billion Maple 3ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 58.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maple 3ian economy, worth 736 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, fairly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. 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 115,522 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New laws have paved the way for female politicians, the nation wears its high incidence of chromosomal diseases as a badge of pride, chickens roam the streets freely, and shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maple 3's national animal is the puffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Maple 3 is ranked 103,129th in the world and 1st in Nordic Sea for Smartest Citizens, with 32.28 quips per hour.
