The Avid Rodent of Malphe II is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Second Horsell with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 6.09 billion Second Malphaes hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Second Horsonopile. The average income tax rate is 12.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Second Malphaen economy, worth 410 trillion Denarii a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 67,329 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Treasury Minister takes anxiety medication every time kids lose their sports kits, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors, and strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Malphe II's national animal is the Desert Woodrat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

Malphe II is ranked 15,013th in the world and 648th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,827.66 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
