The Malthusian Fecundity of Celtic Rodents is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Ultimate Squeaker with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, vat-grown people, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 32.173 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, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. 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 7,481 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 232,550 mythical groats, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, anti-government web sites are springing up, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. 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 166,380th in the world and 8,299th in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
