The United States of House mouse is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.643 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 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.

Elections have recently been reintroduced to House mouse, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. 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 115,141st in the world for Nudest, with 20 Cheeks per Square Mile.
