The Republic of Maple 56 is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 611 million Maple 56ians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The very strong Maple 56ian economy, worth 30.8 trillion planets a year, is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is 50,375 planets, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 208,033 per year while the poor average 8,020, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

Foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence, the endangered saltwater humpback goose is only seen in captivity programs, and the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. Maple 56's national animal is the goose, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Maple 56 is ranked 17,142nd in the world and 78th in Devide by Zero for Fattest Citizens, with 15.75 Obesity Rate.
