The Malthusian Fecundity of Celtic Rodents is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Ultimate Squeaker with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 33.483 billion Scurriers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Everywhere. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Scurrian economy, worth a remarkable 8,125 trillion mythical groats a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Retail. Average income is an amazing 242,672 mythical groats, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and the main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Celtic Rodents's national animal is the small furry beastie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is None.

Celtic Rodents is ranked 224,520th in the world and 10,141st in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -20.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
