The Rat of Malphe is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Horsell with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working population of 6.39 billion Rats enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Horsonopile. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rodentine economy, worth a remarkable 1,020 trillion Malphaen Denarii a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 159,632 Malphaen Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, the Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download, and brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries. Crime is totally unknown. Malphe's national animal is the Desert Woodrat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

Malphe is ranked 74,282nd in the world and 3,890th in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 5.86 Kickbacks Per Hour.
