The United States of House mouse is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.371 billion are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of House mouse City. The average income tax rate is 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in House mouse to be bombproof. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. House mouse's national animal is the Mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the mouse money.

House mouse is ranked 6th in Outer Heaven and 122,198th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -16 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
