The Republic of Maple Islands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by democratically elected government with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.731 billion Maple Islanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Maple Islandsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,122 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 227,437 Loonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', t-shirts displaying a photo of democratically elected government performing the Full-Monty are selling out, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and all recreational drugs are legal. 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 56,094th in the world and 20th in Canada for Most Extreme, scoring 25.95 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
