The United States of House mouse is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.931 billion House mouseans 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, socially-minded 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 94%, 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.

Sex changes are routinely performed at House mouse's hospitals, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and criminals are thrown to the Mice to repay their debt to society. 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 3rd in Outer Heaven and 13,251st in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 25 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
