The Rodentine Union of Malphe is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Horsell with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 6.02 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 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rodentine economy, worth 962 trillion Malphaen Denarii a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 159,883 Malphaen Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 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 66,303rd in the world and 3,582nd in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 39.19 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
