Mapleston, officially known as the Kingdom of Mapleston (French: Royaume de Mapleston), is a country located in south-west Albion. It is composed of six provinces. It shares borders with Gyeoul, the Ecclesiastical State, Ulrichshorst and Foxtrove. The majority of the country’s territory is dominated by forests. However, Mapleston is highly urbanised, with the majority of its population concentrated in large and medium-scale cities. Its capital is Mapleville, and its three largest metropolitan areas are Louismont, Concord and Amherstville.
The land now called Mapleston has been inhabited for millenia by various peoples. Celestian colonization began in 64 AD and ended in 754 AD. As a consequence of various conflicts that followed, numerous kingdoms and city-states emerged in the post-Celestial era. Pursuant to the Grand Treaty, on 10 April 1690, the kingdoms of Trifonia and Beaumont-Gaspé united to form the Kingdom of Mapleston. This began an accretion of provinces and territories to the kingdom to the present six provinces forming modern Mapleston.
Mapleston is a federal parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, with Queen Patricia being the head of state since 1 July 1967. The country is officially bilingual at the federal level. Its advanced economy relies chiefly upon its abundant natural resources and its growing trade networks.
