The Rodentine Union of Malphe is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Horsell with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 6.058 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 968 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 10,230th in the world and 499th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 5,596.46 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
