The Greater Mapletia Union of Mapletish is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Wiston Walash with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 16.098 billion Mapletians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Struggait. The average income tax rate is 56.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maplish economy, worth a remarkable 3,594 trillion Mapletish Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 223,264 Mapletish Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It's considered providence that the political lexicon contains a syrup of company slogans, you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, tourists are duped into trimming hedges for the horsy-set, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime is totally unknown. Mapletish's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Faith.

Mapletish is ranked 167,322nd in the world and 66th in Rushmore for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 693.27 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
