The Rodentine Union of Malphe is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Horsell with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.709 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 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rodentine economy, worth 898 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 157,463 Malphaen Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, and airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path. 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 94,919th in the world and 5,136th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 502.49 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
