The Rodentine Union of Malphe is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Horsell with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.657 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 890 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 157,468 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 153,679th in the world and 7,825th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -14.83 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
