The Grace and Precision of Maple 8 is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.315 billion Maple 8ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Maple 8ian economy, worth 889 trillion planets a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,794 planets, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Dogs are encouraged to confront the psychodynamic roots of their desire to be "good boys", police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, and they say the best compromise leaves everyone feeling a little unarmed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maple 8's national animal is the puffin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Maple 8 is ranked 237,179th in the world and 9th in simple solution for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.72 bananas ingested per day.
