The Under-Empire of The Horned Rat is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Council of Thirteen with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.439 billion Horned Ratians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skavenblight. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Horned Ratian economy, worth an astonishing 10,465 trillion warpstone tokens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 287,196 warpstone tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, and the The Horned Rat Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Horned Rat's national animal is the rat ogre, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Esoteric Covenant of the Horn.

The Horned Rat is ranked 2,709th in the world and 1st in The Dark Lands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 125.47 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
