The Rat of Malphe is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Malphe Vytherov-Skollvaldr with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ritual sacrifices. The compassionate, hard-working population of 10.659 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 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rodentine economy, worth a remarkable 1,692 trillion Malphaen Denarii a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,748 Malphaen Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 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 Horned Rat.

Malphe is ranked 153,775th in the world and 5,734th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.45 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
