The United States of House mouse is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its strong anti-business policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.25 billion House mouseans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 96%. 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.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, people are moving into treehouses in record numbers, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and children have only the most basic of education. 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 113,312th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -191 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
