The United States of House mouse is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.428 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.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. 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 4th in Outer Heaven and 17,983rd in the world for Largest Populations, with 5,428 Capita (millions).
