The Republic of Maple Islands is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by democratically elected government with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.878 billion Maple Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liberty. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Maple Islandsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,163 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 227,957 Loonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal. 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 1,548th in the world and 8th in Canada for Most Developed, scoring 98.01 on the Human Development Index.
